Massive wildfires continued to rage across Brazil's tropical Pantanal region, near the the city of Corumba on Tuesday, wreaking havoc on one of the most biodiverse places in the world.

According to media reports, more than 50,000 hectares (around 125,000 acres) are believed to have been affected since the fires started on October 25.

The massive Pantanal fires decimated local wildlife and threatens the natural habitat of scores of species.

The fires in the Brazilian Pantanal region, the worst blazes since 2007, come after thousands of wildfires ravaged the Amazon rainforest earlier this year, sparking an international outcry about the Brazilian government's environmental policies.
