A Biodiversity Vision sets a number of biodiversity conservation goals based on widely-accepted principles of conservation biology, and identifies critical areas to be either conserved, managed, or restored in order to meet those goals. These areas are identified through a science-based process that relies on the best available biodiversity data and socioeconomic information.
The original area of the Upper Paraná Atlantic Forest ecoregion is the largest (471,204 km²) of the 15 ecoregions of the Atlantic Forests Ecoregion Complex, extending from the western slopes of the Serra do Mar in Brazil to eastern Paraguay and the Misiones Province in Argentina.
The Biodiversity Vision for the Upper Paraná Atlantic Forest Ecoregion is the result of a collaborative effort of the WWF Network with many other institutions ans individuals in an ongoing process that began in 1998.
