Ancient Surprise

Imagine you're out on a routine forest trek to survey wildlife, when you spot this: an ancient cave drawing. It happened to a team of researchers working in Brazil’s Pantanal and Cerrado biomes. While the team was collecting data on white-lipped peccaries, they discovered thousand-year-old works of art made by hunter-gatherer societies. The discovery is not only an exciting archaeological achievement, but it emphasizes the importance of protecting these landscapes for both their natural and cultural heritage.
