Undeniably immense, and not only in the geographical sense, Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world and largest in the continent, dominating South America. It consists of the largest portion of the Amazon Jungle and River, and an Atlantic coastline spanning a staggering 7,500 kilometres. From gleaming stretches of sugar-white sand beaches to cascading waterfalls, verdant rainforests to the world's largest freshwater wetlands, these rich and diverse landscapes provide a sanctuary for Earth's greatest collection of plant and animal species. Jaguars, giant anteaters, capybara, scarlet macaws, pink dolphins and thousands of other unique creatures form Brazil’s unparalleled biodiversity.
