Is anybody around from Colombia? I have to translate a heading "Conservación del Humedal La Conejera y Humedales del Altiplano Cundiboyacense, Colombia".

I would like to know the noun not the adjective.

Explanation:
Sorry, I have to rush off to dinner, but you can check an atlas for: "la región de Villa de Leyva, Sutamarchán y Ráquira" which are part of the altiplano cundiboyacense, where the Chibchas live. Hint: atlases are great places to look, because they give place names in several languages.

Explanation:
but there seems to be no translation. The way I have found it is the "Altiplano Condibuyacense zone"... you may want to take a look at the link below (in English) and go to item 3.


Good luck!
