Araripe Manakin

The vast plateau above and the lands below are arid and receive less than 100cm of rain per year. But the plateau funnels the little water it receives through bedrock to more than 200 springs along its slopes. These springs feed a humid forest of tall trees and lush vegetation found nowhere else in the region. This is the home of the Araripe Manakin.
