La región del Cono Sur de Sudamérica alberga un área de pastizales naturales únicos en el mundo por su gran riqueza en biodiversidad. Estas exuberantes llanuras, conocidas como “pampas” (palabra quechua que significa planicie), cubren casi un millón de kilometros y se extienden desde Paraguay, Uruguay, Brasil hasta Argentina.

Los pastizales naturales son hábitat de alrededor de 600 aves silvestres registradas y ecosistemas críticos para millones de aves migratorias que trazan rutas de hasta 15 mil kilometros cada año para unir las praderas norteamericas con las pampas de Sudamérica. Las especies de pastos y plantas propias de este bioma brindan alimento y refugio, y representan importantes áreas de reproducción para aves endémicas, como el Tordo Amarillo (Xanthopsar flavus) o la Monjita Dominicana (Xolmis dominicanus).
