Fire consumes vegetation on the Sao Francisco Perigara farm in the Pantanal. The farm is home to one of the largest populations of hyacinth macaws in the world. About 95% of the farm's area was destroyed by fire including many of the acuri palms that provide the main feed for the macaws.
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.
