Let's Go: Discover the Pantanal, a Wetland Paradise for Birds
Brazil’s Pantanal is the largest seasonal floodplain on Earth, and South America’s most diverse wildlife realm. The Pantanal’s mosaic of freshwater marshlands and islands supports more than 650 bird species including hyacinth macaws and jabiru storks, along with many lesser-known birds that are part of this wild refuge’s extraordinary biodiversity. Herons, hummingbirds, vultures, kingfishers, owls, plovers, lapwing, macaws, and a profusion of waterbirds are just a few of the avian highlights you can expect to see. On our virtual journey, join Expedition Leaders Fred Tavares and Annie Van Dinther to learn all about the astonishing variety of avifauna that thrives in these sprawling wetlands. Fred will also share bird identification tips and interpretive insights into the broader ecology of the Pantanal.
