Estação Natureza Exhibit

Estação Natureza Pantanal Exhibit


The Estação Natureza Pantanal (Estação Natureza Pantanal Exhibit), in Corumbá (state of Mato Grosso do Sul), was inaugurated in 2006 and is a cultural space presenting a permanent exhibition on the Pantanal (Brazilian wetlands).

The exhibition counts on several interactive elements to show the wonders of the wetlands and is destined to publics of all ages, focusing on students, tourists, and local population.

The Estação Natureza Pantanal also holds cultural events about the environment throughout the year, with the goal of publicizing the initiative and provide awareness about nature conservation to increasingly more people.

The initiative is supported by the Ministry of Culture – through its Culture Endowment Act –, in partnership with Instituto Homem Pantaneiro.

The exhibition is located at the Edifício Sleiman, a historical building whose construction dates from 1908 and is part of a series of historical buildings in the Porto Geral area that are considered part of the city’s heritage. Built in a Neo-Classical style, it is located on a platform dug into the slope of a rocky formation, with its walls made of paving stones. Prior to hosting the Estação Natureza Pantanal, the building was the site of stores, residences, hotel, lace shop, and the port authority.

The exhibition is comprised of 23 panels distributed throughout over 300 square meters on the ground floor. When visiting the exhibition, the visitor passes through scenarios representing the geological formation, the hydrography and the flood cycles, the variations in temperature in the wetlands, and fun facts about animals, plants, and ecosystems of the region.

At the end of the tour, the visitor is encouraged to reflect on how society can contribute for the conservation of the wetlands.
