Bolsinaro is pro burning the entire Amazon and Pantanal. He has stated this and is a total climate denier and does not believe that this will ahve an effect on the planet despite the fact that this is the largest oxygen producing region on Earth.

This movie about the Giant Armadillo shows a lot about the Pantanal and covers some of the problems there:

This article has some facts and figures on what has happened under Bolsinaro:

 Since January, 12% (9000 square miles) of the Pantanal has burned. During his first year in office, deforestation increased 85.3%!!!! Pretty sad.

Yup, exactly what I was referring to and he was actively encouraging people to burn the Amazon and then use it for agriculture.
