The Amsterdam-Saint Paul bioregion, located in the far south of the Indian Ocean, is at the furthest edge of the Afroptropical realm, at the transition between the Indomalayan and Antarctic realms. Its two islands are dominated by temperate grasslands with one single ecoregion – Amsterdam-Saint Paul Islands Temperate Grasslands  – and adjacent marine areas. It is an especially important breeding area for an array of birds as well as fur seals, elephant seals, and rockhopper penguins.
