What is the Pantanal?
The Pantanal is one of the largest and best-conserved wetlands in the world. Its unique flood pulse (that’s seasonal flood and drought cycles) help make it a haven for wildlife. In fact it’s home to close to 5,000 recorded species of water bird, plant, fish and reptile. It also provides vast natural or ecosystem services, valued at $112 billion per annum.
