Newsletter 165

Why choose the Pantanal for your next photographic tour?

The Pantanal is a natural region encompassing the world’s largest tropical wetland area. Roughly 80% of the Pantanal floodplains are submerged during the rainy seasons, nurturing an astonishing biologically diverse collection of aquatic plants and helping to support a dense array of animal species.

The Pantanal ecosystem is also thought to be home to 1000 bird species, 400 fish species, 300 mammalian species, 480 reptile species and over 9000 different subspecies of invertebrates. Among the rarest animals to inhabit the wetland of the Pantanal are the marsh deer and the giant river otter. Parts of the Pantanal are also home to the following endangered or threatened species: the hyacinth macaw, the crowned solitary eagle, the maned wolf, the bush dog, the South American tapir and the giant anteater. Common species in the Pantanal include the capybara and the yacare caiman. The Pantanal is home to one of the largest and healthiest jaguar populations on Earth.

Early June is the best time of year to experience all that the Pantanal has to offer. Mark your calendars and I will keep you posted on the exact dates.

Happy Holidays!
