ISLAND OF THE KING BUFFALO
An ubiquitous creature
Marajo is the world’s biggest river island, nestled at the mouth of the Amazon.
This is a place out of time where being laidback is a way of life. People brace themselves for a hypothetic touristic boom while raising a singular animal which ended there 200 years ago : the buffalo.
This quiet creature has become ubiquitous and plays a central role in the local life, even allowing Marajo to have its own, if atypical, mounted police.
