Uruguayan savanna

WWF Abstract

The Uruguayan Savanna ecoregion encompasses the entire country of Uruguay and parts of southeastern Brazil and northeastern Argentina. Sparsely wooded grasslands, gallery forests, open forests, and palm savanna once spread across this region, but now most of these habitats have been converted to agriculture and other uses. In the scattered remnants, a fantastic array of wildlife finds refuge.
