Over 2 Million Animals Perished in 🇧🇴Bolivia Wildfires

Nothing less than two million wild animals, including jaguars, pumas and llamas, have perished in weeks of wildfires that consumed huge swaths of Bolivian forest and grassland, environmental experts stated this on Wednesday.

The fires devastated the Chiquitania tropical savanna in the east of the country.

"We have consulted the biologists of Chiquitania and we have exceeded the estimate of more than 2.3 million missing animals in many protected areas," Professor Sandra Quiroga of Santa Cruz University told.

Latin American ocelots, and other wild cats like pumas and jaguars, as well as deer, llamas -- and smaller forest animals like anteaters, badgers, lizards, tapirs and rodents -- were victims of the fires, according to biologists investigating the scale of the damage.

Local media showed images of charred animal carcasses in the smouldering forests and birds fleeing to zones spared by the flames.
