Parana Atlantic Forest

In eastern Paraguay (Oriente), The Upper Parana Atlantic Forest (UPAF) is the western extension of the Atlantic Forest (Bosque Atlantico), which is one of the most biologically diverse habitats in the world.  There were once about eight million hectares of the UPAF, but seven million hectares have been converted to pasture and cropland.  Most of the remaining UPAF occurs in small patches that have been severely degraded.
