Meet the inhabitants of the Amazon region with a visit to Bosque da Ciencia. This open-air museum is an Amazonian Research Station whose most famous project is the species revival of the Amazon River manatee. Observe these strange creatures, in danger of extinction, as they swim in a glass tank. Part of the museum is open-air, with access via trails. The other part is an indoor exhibit of scientific projects under development. See the world's largest and smallest leaves, both found in the Amazon. Otters, electric eels, alligators, orchids and bromeliads are also housed here.
You’ll also visit the Military Zoo, where wildlife and Amazonian fauna are housed.
Shade is limited and temperatures are always high; to avoid sunburn, wear light, long clothing suitable for use as a cover-up. Bring a hat and sunglasses; wear biodegradable sunscreen. Bring bottled water. Bring a light, waterproof outer layer. The Military Zoo is somewhat primitive, with some animals kept in cages rather than in a natural habitat. Tour does not operate on Sundays and Mondays.
