Brazil is arguably the most biologically rich country in the world. It boasts a variety of natural wonders and ecological zones providing home to an awe-inspiring assortment of wildlife, including around 1,800 bird species.
To put it into context, Brazil is considered home to the greatest number of mammal species in the world. The number of fish species found in the Amazon (the largest tropical forest and most pristine wild place on the planet) exceeds that of the entire Atlantic Ocean. A single lake in Brazil can sustain a greater variety of fish than all of Europe’s rivers combined. The Pantanal is the world’s largest freshwater wetland.
Brazil’s landscape provides habitat and shelter for nature’s most divers wildlife such as: Jaguars, Caimans, Anacondas, Red-faced White Uakari monkeys, New World and Muriqui monkeys, Pirarucus, Giant Otters, and Giant Anteaters.
