Panthera Scientists Fight Fires in Brazil
Panthera Conservation Scientist Fernando Tortato talks to AP about the devastating wildfires impacting the Brazilian Pantanal where 15% of our ranch property has already been consumed.
He explains the process of making fire breaks saying, "We prepare the team, a truck with a water pump, fire swatters and backpack water pumps so that, in case the fire jumps that barrier, we can combat it. It’s the only strategy that has managed to resolve the fire, in some situations.”
