Protected species in the Amazon's Cristalino state park (15 pictures)

Cristalino State Park
The park, in Mato Grosso, is one of the most biodiverse reserves in the region. But lack of management means it remains under serious threat from fire and illegal logging. Little is known about the botanical diversity of the region, and regional capacity for research is limited.
