Fauna and Flora on Ilha Grande

This paradise has dense vegetation with beautiful Atlantic Forest plants with many fruits and wild animals. The vegetation of Ilha Grande is essential for maintaining the environmental balance and for the beauty of the place, since the soil of the islands of the archipelago is a few meters deep and lies on rocks, allowing it to slide easily if there is no presence there. of long-rooted trees that “hold” the soil in place. For this reason, deforestation in the region is strictly punished and its rate is almost nil.

Ilha Grande offers a wide variety of wild animals such as monkeys, capybaras, snakes, reptiles, amphibians and many birds, in addition to the rich marine life with whales, dolphins, sea turtles and many fish. There are also sharks on Ilha Grande and, due to their perfect balance, there has never been a single attack on human beings.
