Pernambuco interior forests

WWF Abstract

Climb up the hills, mountains, and plateaus of the Pernambuco Interior Forests and you'll encounter an incredible diversity of species, many of them endemic. These forests, together with the neighboring Pernambuco Coastal Forests, form a unique hotspot of diversity known as the "Pernambuco Center." Here you'll find numerous antbirds, tree frogs, ocelots, and much, much more. This region is biogeographically very important for many species and is considered a "melting-pot" of speciation in eastern South America.
