River Wonders

Although freshwater habitats make up less than one percent of the Earth’s surface area, they support a wide variety of plant and animal life – in fact, 45% of all fish species are found in freshwater.

River Wonders offers a glimpse of the amazing diversity of life that thrive in rivers and along river banks. Watch the silvery marmoset and endangered golden-headed lion tamarin forage among the dense foliage and marvel at the colours and variety of freshwater species, including the recently discovered celestial pearl danio and the altum angelfish – a rare and timid cousin of the common angelfish.
