Wintersun wrote a review Oct Lake Tahoe CaliforniaCalifornia contributions21 helpful votes One of only a few places where you can see jaguars in the wild With the new right wing junta in power in Brazil we knew that the days of the Pantanal were numbered and wanted to see it before the cattle ranchers and soy and palm oil growers burned it down.

We met a scientist who works for the university of Cuiaba and has studied the region for the last 20 years. He told us that in 10 years time the Pantanal would be so dry as a result of global warming that it would no longer be protected Pantanal Matogrossense National Park man made fires.

We wanted to see wildlife in the wild and not in a zoo after it becomes extinct. The Pantanal with its limited access has seen the survival of a population of jaguars despite the efforts of the local Glacier National Park To Great Falls Mt ranchers to exterminate them which continues to the present Pantanal Matogrossense National Park.

It is hot at 99 degrees and very humid and so it pays to wear appropriate clothing and have UV protective gloves, hat, Balaclava, etc.

We rented a jeep from Cuiaba and drove to Pocone and then to Porto Jofre. We were lucky to see giant anteaters, Multiple Jaguars, Hyacithn Macaws, Tucans, Green anacondas, Giant otters, Giant storks, Capybaras, tapirs, and many monkeys and other birds.

It is incredible. You can take a boat through the rivers, or ride in safari vehicles or you can horse back ride. So much to see and do.

The formation is a result of the large, concave pre-Andean depression of the earth’s crust, related to the Andean orogeny of the Tertiary. It is home to over 2, different species of plants, which are home to over species of mammals, species of birds, and species of amphibians or reptiles. Weak enforcement of environmental laws, meanwhile, has meant that perpetrators of illegal burning and deforestation often face few consequences. But environmental and enforcement sources say the vast majority of the fires raging this year can be traced back to human activity, rather than nature.
