Tourists take selfies while members of the fire brigade put out a spot fire burning a wooden bridge on the Transpantaneira road 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.
