The Valdivian Temperate Rain Forest is a 95,800 square mile region of South America that encompasses parts of Chile and Argentina. The Valdivian Temperate Rainforest is famous for is endemic plants and 150 foot tall trees, as well as its rare animal species. Temperate rainforests are found in limited numbers in the world, mostly in regions near the ocean where moisture is abundant. Many of the plant families found here are also found in the temperate rainforests of Australia, Tasmania and New Zealand. Because of excessive logging, many of the old-growth tree species are threatened.
