Iberá Wetlands • Argentina Started in January 2005 Active Conservation, Restoration, Tourism, Education, Research
Filled with freshwater lagoons and reservoirs, the Iberá Wetlands connect diverse forests, marshlands, and grasslands, which were severely deteriorated during the 20th century, with a devastating loss of wildlife, including keystone species like the giant otter and the jaguar, and a loss of traditional knowledge in the communities. By reintroducing Iberá’s keystone species, we can restore the region’s natural processes and the unique culture that evolved with them.
