One of the country’s richest habitats is the much-depleted Atlantic Forest which originally covered 1200 million km2 along the Atlantic coast of South America, however, only ~ 12% of the original forest cover remains, mostly in small and isolated forest fragments and as a result, the Atlantic Forest has a high concentration of threatened and endemic bird species, being the most renowned neo tropical hotspot for endemism.
