Pantanal nature reserve in Paraguay

This video, recorded in Brazil, is called The Pantanal: A Jewel of South America.

From BirdLife:

In 2005, the Paraguayan Pantanal was designated an Important Bird Area (IBA) by Guyra Paraguay/BirdLife International based on its importance for congregations of waterbirds and regionally endemic bird species.

As well as being important for birds, the Pantanal IBA also represents crucial habitat for a number of other species.

Over 300 species of fish, 40 amphibians, 55 reptiles, 120 mammals and 2,000 species of plant are known to exist there.

All will be protected within the boundaries of the site.
