IntroductionAdvance permission from the National Park Department (IBAMA) is advisable for visiting Emas National Park 745 mi/1,200 km northwest of Rio de Janeiro (there are no tourist facilities). Hard-core nature lovers will find it worth the trouble, as it's an excellent place to see Brazilian wildlife. The residents include rheas, anteaters, capybaras, coatimundis and armadillos, as well as tropical birds. Enormous termite mounds dot the grounds. The park lies east of the Pantanal. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1035.
