Bosque da Ciência

Located in Petrópolis, the Bosque da Ciência, or Science Grove, is a 13-hectare (32-acre) park run by the Institute for Amazon Research that is devoted to Amazon wildlife. Visitors get a taste of the Amazon while wandering amid enormous rain forest trees and seeing rescued manatees as well as giant otters, turtles and caymans. Squirrel monkeys, sloths and other forest animals share the grounds, which also include a small natural-history museum.
