Staging site

The Beni savanna is an area twice the size of Portugal , which contains five distinctive habitats: savanna, treed savanna (Cerrado), forest islands, gallery forests and marsh wetlands. The region is crossed by three major rivers, which flow into the Madeira River, the major southern tributary of the Amazon.

The region is subject to flooding due to seasonal rainfall combined with melt water from the Andes, and it is this cycle of inundation that creates the ecoregion’s distinctive mosaic of forested islands.
