Mato Grosso do Sul, formerly part of Mato Grosso, was established as a separate state in the late 1970s. Mato Grosso do Sul lies in Brazil’s Centre-West and borders Bolivia and Paraguay. A large part of the state is covered by the vast floodplain known as the Pantanal, one of the largest wetland ecoregions in the world.
