Flora Fact of the Day
The Cerrado is a massive tropical savannah in Brazil, and is the most biologically rich savannah in the world. It houses over 1600 animal species, including the Maned Wolf, Ocelot, Hyacinth Macaw, and Giant Anteater, and also about 10,000 species of vascular plants. Altogether, the Cerrado holds 5% of life on earth, but due to farming, fires, and other human-based effects, this ecosystem is fading fast. To learn more about the Cerrado and how you can help protect it, go to wwf.org.uk.
Awww! Nothing better than a bit of warmth from your own species! :)
