Trans Fly savanna and grasslands

WWF Abstract

This ecoregion is different from the many others you can find on the island of New Guinea. While other ecoregions there contain moist, lush rain forests, this ecoregion has dry grasslands and savannas. A variety of animals can be found here, including an endemic species of kookaburra, a bird made famous in a childrenÂ’s song.
