There is lots of nature to see in Brazil, between the Amazon basin, the Pantanal, and the Mata Atlântica (Atlantic Forest) there is an incredible variety of fauna and flora. I was especially captivated by the bird life and the wildflowers.

The Pantanal Conservation Area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
