Situated in the heart of South America, the Pantanal is the world's largest tropical wetland, covering 75,000 square miles, and is one of the most biologically-rich environments on the planet. It is a refuge for iconic wildlife, including the hyacinth macaw, the caiman, and giant river otters—creating an intricate food chain made up of the largest concentration of wildlife in the Americas. At the apex is the elegant and elusive jaguar. WWF and partners have worked in the Pantanal since 1998, helping to protect this extraordinary ecological system, so humans and nature can continue to thrive. Over the last several years, WWF supported a new transboundary sustainable development and conservation strategy in partnership with the governments of Bolivia, Brazil, and Paraguay that will protect this globally significant freshwater resource.

Join WWF's Sarah Davidson and local experts on a journey into the heart of our efforts as we visit the regions vital to the future of the Pantanal. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity explores firsthand how WWF is working on-the-ground with communities, NGOs, governments, and the private sector to protect the iconic wildlife, habitat, and the people who call this extraordinary region home. On foot, by boat and in 4x4, we will venture into the verdant depths of the Pantanal.
