Flooded Grasslands & Savannas

The Southern Cone Mesopotamian savannas are located in the Misiones, Corrientes and Entre Rios provinces of northwestern Argentina. This ecoregion consists of a mosaic of habitats, including seasonally wet grasslands, marshes, woodland, and gallery forests. The grasslands are considered an Endemic Bird Area with three restricted-range species, two of which are threatened. The region is highly threatened due to destruction and degradation of the natural habitat by cattle ranching and agriculture. Overgrazing is one of the common problems in the area.
