Pantanal, Brasil. "The Pantanal is a stunning marshy wilderness positively teeming with wildlife. The region is South America’s answer to the African savannas and one of the continent’s most fantastic natural attractions, best viewed from a boat or canoe."
The Pantanal swamp in southern Brazil - Less well-known than the Amazon rain forest, this mighty wetland is at certain times of year larger than England, well over 100,000 sq km during the rainy season. From December to May, 80% of the area is flooded, and is almost 10 times the size of Florida's Everglades

Many people think that dolphins are coming over to ships to be with them. In reality, dolphins are using the waves created by the ships to make the most out of crossing the ocean.

Amazon Basin, Brazil Photograph by Kevin Schafer, National Geographic Freshwater dolphins are among the threatened species protected within the Central Amazon Conservation Complex, a biologically diverse habitat that became a World Heritage site in 2000. Covering nearly 15 million acres (6 million hectares), the site makes up the Amazon Basin’s largest protected area.

Amazon Basin, Brazil- freshwater dolphins! Endangered, I think
Central Amazon: The verdant green forests of the Amazon Basin cover an area larger than Texas. And the largest protected area within this vast and vital ecosystem is the Central Amazon Conservation Complex—a sprawling 23,000-square-mile (6-million-hectare) site that is itself bigger than Switzerland. The Amazon is one of the most biodiverse places on the entire planet. It's particularly rich in freshwater species—including more than 3,000 different fish species and the world’s largest variety of electric fish. The region is also home to unique and threatened South American species, including the giant arapaima fish, the Amazonian manatee, the black caiman, and two species of river dolphin.
Amazon Basin, Brazil- freshwater dolphins!

Hector's dolphins are endemic to the coastal regions of New Zealand. There are two known main populations, one on each side of the South Island. The two populations are believed to be largely cut off from one another by deep water at Cook Strait and at the south-west tip of the South Island. The species seems unwilling or unable to cross areas of deep water. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hector's_Dolphin Akaroa Harbour Banks Peninsula New Zealand

Amazing ..... Pink dolphins are a rare breed of freshwater dolphins that make their home in the Amazon River. Beautiful as well as smart (their brains are 40 percent bigger than a human's), they are the largest of the four known species of river dolphins. Unfortunately, they are also endangered due to pollution, over fishing, and destruction of their natural habitat. According to National Geographic, approximately 100,000 of them remain.
