The Uruguay River wetlands from space


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.

This image was captured by the Copernicus Sentinel-2B satellite on August 17, 2018.
