Araucaria moist forests

WWF Abstract

The Araucaria Moist Forests grow across the mountainous areas of southern Atlantic Brazil and extend into northeastern Argentina. To see them firsthand, you'd have to hike from middle-level plateaus at around 1,650 feet (500 m) up to the high slopes of the Serra da Mantiqueira, which rise to 5,280 feet (1,600 m) above sea-level. But you'd be well rewarded for your hard work by seeing a fabulous diversity of wild plants, birds, mammals, and more!
