Aerial footage captured on Tuesday reveals the scale of the damage caused by the fires in Pocone, Mato Grosso, with large portions of the wetlands left charred and and animals, including an anteater left for dead.
The fires have completely upset the biodiversity in the region. Wild animals often try to escape the flames but end up dying near the roads of dehydration, or being run over by passing cars.
Brazil's southern state of Mato Grosso has declared a state of emergency on Monday. The fires have reportedly destroyed 1.4 million hectares of vegetation in the region since the beginning of the year.
