Pantanal

A unique ecosystem

The floodplains created by the rising of the Paraguay River is a fantastic and unique ecosystem, with fauna and flora of great beauty. Many of its species can only be seen there, but others, which typical of the Amazon and Cerrado, also inhabit the Pantanal. In this World Natural Heritage Site listed by UNESCO, we can find products of medicinal value, different types of honey, and organic cattle raised by indigenous families, with the support of WWF Brazil. This is a perfect example of economic activity integrated with local culture and the environment.
