Alta Paraná Atlantic forests

WWF Abstract

If you want to see the largest and best-protected parts of the Brazilian semi-deciduous forest, you should travel to the Parañá-Paraíba Interior Forests. Here you'll find a great variety of plant and animal species, including many that are threatened and endangered. Visit the lowland and northern stretches of the forest and you'll discover tropical conditions, while the upland and southern parts are more temperate. This ecoregion also provides an important migratory corridor for animals, linking the Atlantic forests with the cerrado savannas.
