Today’s Video of the Day from the European Space Agency features the Uruguay River wetlands from space.
The wetlands, which include lagoons, swamps, and 24 islets, provide a special habitat for wildlife and are protected as a national park.
The region provides a home to 130 species of fish, 14 species of amphibian, 104 species of bird, and 15 species of mammal.
