The forest around Iguassu
click to enlargeThe Missiones or Paranaense (from the name of the Brazilian State of Parana) jungle is one of the most threatened environments in Argentina and at the same time one of the vastest in terms of biodiversity. At the beginning of the 20th century, this jungle covered an important part of Brazil, Paraguay and almost all of the Argentinean State of Missiones. Nowadays, 5% of the original forest remains in Brazil, 15% in Paraguay and 45% in Missiones. However, thanks to a vast network of National and Provincial Parks as well as protected areas, a Green Corridor "as is called the jungle portion which stretches from Iguassu to Mocona falls - shelters the last remnants of this environment. It contains more than 3,400,000 acres of original jungle and reforested jungle. Missiones Province in Argentina has the greatest responsibility in preserving it for future generations.
