ECO-SERIES: Brazilië
Brasil!!
 
Mijn reis begin in Brazilië, dus mijn eerste blog zal ook over Brazilië gaan. Brazilië is een geweldig land die bijna een kwart van Zuid Amerika inneemt. De mooiste natuurparken zijn te vinden in:
 
THE AMAZON - The Largest Rainforest in the World: The mythical Amazon can only be described in superlatives. It covers an area of 5 million square kilometers of which 60% is on Brazilian territory. It is the largest and most intact rainforest region in the world.
 
PANTANAL - The Largest Wetlands in the World: In the centre of the South American continent lies the largest wetlands in the world: the Pantanal. Extending into three countries, Brazil, Bolivia and Paraguay, its total area is an estimated 240,000 square kilometers (60% is in Brazil).
 
THE ATLANTIC FOREST - The Forgotten Rainforest of Brazil: The Atlantic Forest is one of the most threatened rainforests in the world. It used to stretch all along the Brazilian coast occupying an area of about 1.1 million square kilometers. Now less than 10% remains. Most of the forest cover in the states North of Salvador is gone.
 
CERRADO - The Magical Brazilian Heartland: The heartland of Brazil, the "cerrado", covers an area equal to Western Europe (2 million sq km) and is thought to be one of the South American continent's more ancient ecosystems.
 
CAATINGA - Ancient Badlands of Northeastern Brazil: Caa-tinga (caa = woods, tinga = white) is the Tupi Indian name for the typical vegetation of the backlands of the North East of Brazil. In the prolonged dry season, most of the thorny bushes, scrubs and contorted trees of the caatinga lose their leaves and you see a thicket of dull grey-white trunks and twigs.

Hier wordt uitgelegd hoe eco tourisme in Brazilië werkt en hoe dit tot stand is gekomen.
 
 
Transport
------------
bussen zijn in Zuid Amerika een grote belangrijke vorm van nationaal en internationaal transport. Een betere vorm van reizen dan met het vliegtuig en je rijd met +\- 80 man tegelijk. Ideaal dus!
 
 
Ga je binnenkort naar Brazilië? Hopelijk heb ik je geïnspireerd voor een Eco manier van reizen!
