Serra da Capivara National Park and Permanent Preservation Areas

.

Serra da Capivara National Park and Permanent Preservation Areas is part of the Tentative list of Brazil in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List. It is a proposed extension of Serra da Capivara WHS.

Serra da Capivara National Park protects a mountain range known for its Caatinga shrubland. Water is scarce in the area. The park holds many prehistoric rock paintings, suggesting it was more densely populated in the pre-Columbian era.
