Divisions Scope[edit]

South America satellite orthographic.jpg

This project covers the creation and maintenance of articles related to the continent of South America, its geology and geologic history, geography, climate and lifeforms. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on South America in a fair and accurate manner. It is grateful for the work of any other projects dealing with more specific areas of the continent, and will gladly focus its attention on those articles which fall within areas not covered by any other existing regional project. Given the existing projects below, that would leave our focus of attention currently on the Falkland Islands, French Guiana, Guyana, Paraguay, South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands, and Suriname.

Participants[edit]

All members should feel free to add {{User WikiProject South America}} to their userpages. It automatically adds members to Category:WikiProject South America participants.
