The Chocón Machacas Biotope is set within El Golfete, a small lake that adjoins the Río Dulce. The biotope helps protect about 100 manatees— large aquatic mammals that look like walruses. Manatees are threatened in the area and the 72-square-mile (186-square-kilometers) park helps protect them from harm.
Within these lowland flood forests and mangroves that surround the lagoons live 130 birds, 31 mammals, and 31 reptile/amphibian species. As you float along the lagoons of this biotope, keep looking for otters, orange-breasted falcons, and manatees.
