WWF Abstract

This arid land in South America has been greatly affected since the 1600s, when cattle became the prominent species on the landscape. Found today only in small patches, the original habitat was once home to a great diversity of birds, mammals, plants, and other species. Much of the native wildlife--including guanacos, greater rheas, and giant anteaters--can still be found in the region today, though in much smaller numbers than once before.
