Caatinga

WWF Abstract

Visit the Caatinga region of northeastern Brazil, and you'll discover the largest dry forest region in South America and one of the richest dry forests in the world. Although much of the region has been altered by heavy grazing and agricultural development, you still have a chance of seeing dozens of mammals, loads of lizards, and hundreds of birds!
