What is the Pantanal?

The Pantanal is a vast wetland region located mostly in Brazil, but also extending into Bolivia and Paraguay. It is the largest freshwater wetlands in the world and is home to a diverse array of wildlife, including jaguars, giant otters, and hundreds of bird species. That got Pantanal to be recognized by Unesco as a Natural Heritage of Humanity and Biosphere Reserve.

The Pantanal is also home to several indigenous peoples, including the Guató, Kaiowá, Kadiwéu, Xavante, among others. These communities have lived in the region for centuries and have a deep cultural and spiritual connection to the land and its resources. However, the Pantanal is facing a number of threats, including deforestation, overfishing, and the construction of dams, which are negatively impacting the livelihoods of these indigenous peoples.
