Brazil, Pantanal Safari: Birds and Jaguars
August 27 through September 9, 2015
South America’s Pantanal region is the world’s largest tropical wetland, the result of several rivers draining seasonally into an ancient inland basin. The rivers bring nutrient-rich sediments that fuel an explosive flush of life unparalleled in the Americas. Houston Audubon and Victor Emanuel Nature Tours are offering a special departure this summer to visit the spectacular Pantanal and the adjacent Cerrado savannas in the heart of southern Brazil. This is the best place on the planet to see jaguar. More than 300 bird species are likely and many South American endemic mammals and reptiles as well.
Red-legged Seriema

Leading this trip are VENT leader David Ascanio, an expert on South American birds; Richard Gibbons, Houston Audubon's Conservation Director; and a local guide.
