pantanal'>Brazilian Pantanal has been burning since mid-July, with fires four times the size of the largest fire in the Amazon rainforest. The world's largest wetland is home to roughly 1,200 vertebrate species, including 36 threatened with extinction
Brazil’s Pantanal, the world’s biggest wetland, has had a record 10,000+ fires this year. Scientists blame climate change and drought. It is home to dozens of threatened species like jaguars, which biologists are finding starving or severely burned: “Everything is suffering.”
Fires in Brazil's Amazon are nearing 2019's catastrophic levels, with almost 30,000 in August alone. And in the Pantanal, the world's largest wetlands, fires are the worst in 15 years due to heat and low rain — threatening the world's densest population of jaguars.
