South America is home to some of the finest wildlife hotspots on earth. From extraordinarily beautiful mountains and immense rainforests to unique island archipelagos and thousands of miles of coastline, hundreds of incredible animal species are waiting to be discovered on this incredible continent. Read more about great wildlife conservation travel opportunities below.
South America has 3 prominent wildlife hotspots: the Amazon rainforest, the Andes Mountains, and the Galapagos Islands. The Amazon is the world's largest expanse of rainforest, encompassing as much land as the contiguous US, spread out over eight countries. The Andes are the world's longest mountain chain, running more than 4,000 miles through seven countries. And the Galapagos Islands are the birthplace of evolution, where Charles Darwin first formulated his groundbreaking theories.
This South American gem is home to incredible cultural and natural treasures. From some of the best protected areas of the Amazon to the soaring views of Machu Picchu, Peru is a great place to see both spectacular wildlife and learn about fascinating cultures.
This unique archipelago includes more than 20 islands spread out over more than 17,000 square miles of Pacific ocean. Some of the wildlife you can see here include giant tortoises, marine iguanas, sharks, sea turtles, penguins, and many species of birds.
