Corumba, Mato Grosso, Brazil

Exhusted members of the Brazilian Institute for the Environment and Renewable Natural Resources (IBAMA) fire brigade rest after more than 12 hours spent trying to control a forest fire burning on the Santa Tereza farm, in the Pantanal.

Since the beginning of 2020, the Pantanal has been facing the largest destruction by burning in its history. From January to September, fires burned 3,977,000 hectares of the Pantanal, which corresponds to 26.5% of the entire biome, killing a vast amount of the region's wildlife.
