Slideshow: Where the Xingu Bends and Will Soon Break

Katie L. Burke, Barbara AulicinoOct 21, 2015

Mark Sabaj Pérez is an ichthyologist whose expertise includes photographing fish up close and in detail. In this slideshow, we wanted to showcase some of the stunning visuals from his recent feature, "Where the Xingu Bends and Will Soon Break," which serves as a biologist's ode to Brazil's Xingu River, where the controversial Belo Monte megadam is slated to go into operation soon, changing its extensive rapids and diverse habitats. The author has been working with a team of Brazilian and American scientists on the iXingu Project to document the biodiversity of the river before the dam is in operation.
