The Fazenda Santo Antonio do Paraiso in Brazil is so large it's practically its own country. The ranch spans 255,371 deeded acres. It spreads over some of the most beautiful and unspoiled land in the world. Most of the land is part of the Pantanal Wetlands Complex, the world's largest wetlands. There are four separate ecosystems on the ranch which support jaguar, puma, deer, anaconda and hundreds of species of birds. The ranch is also a working farm with 23,000 mother cows and soybeans on 8,000 tilled acres but most of the land is left to nature. Outside Magazine had a piece in November that touches on the search to find a conservation-minded buyer with $74 million to spend on this gorgeous piece of land and help protect what remains of the planet's diversity. The listing is with Hall & Hall.
