Nearly 17 million animals died in wildfires in Brazil’s wetlands last year

Birds fly past as a fire consumes an area next to the Trans-Pantanal highway in the Pantanal wetlands near Pocone, Mato Grosso state, Brazil, on Sept. 11, 2020.

The estimate comes from scientists who examined the number of carcasses they found up to 48 hours after a fire event. The rate of climate change makes such wildfires inevitable, they say.
