Introducing Amazona Zoo

The continent of South America comprises 14 countries of which Brazil is the largest, so large that the continent of Australia could fit within its borders. Brazil is home to the largest river system on earth, the mighty Amazon.

The river’s name comes from the local Indian name, Amossona – the destroyer of boats. Travelling 4,000 miles from the Peruvian Andes the river collects over one fifth of the world’s river water on its way to the Atlantic. The river and its tributaries give over 30,000 miles of navigable waterways.

The Amazon river and rainforest, South America

In 1859, 28 years after first leaving England for South America on the voyage of HMS Beagle, Charles Darwin published On the Origin of Species. It was his first observations on the past and present wildlife of South America that were to shape our understanding and appreciation of the wonders of our planet.

The zone of the Amazon River (inspiring our name, Amazona Zoo), is the wettest, largest and most diverse on the planet. It is also the most vulnerable to irrevocable damage by the greed, not the need, of man.

At Amazona Zoo, you will see just a fraction of the richness of South American wildlife. Your visit will help to support desperately needed conservation efforts.
