Conservation of Mar Chiquita and the Rio Dulce Wetlands, Argentina

We are working to help implement the new Ansenuza National Park of 1+ million acres in one of Argentina’s richest ecological areas, the Mar Chiquita Lake and the Río Dulce wetlands. The area is the largest salt lake and saline wetlands in South America and is of global significance for its concentrations of colonial and migratory waterbirds, supporting over one percent of the global populations of 20 species. We supported Natura Argentina, other non-profits and the governments and communities involved to support the creation of the national park, and are now working to implement it by developing conservation programs as well as sustainable economies and tourism with local communities and the national park service.

We are working with our partner Natura Argentina to help create a large national Park of 225,000 acres in the Sierra de Famatina in La Rioja province, northern Argentina. This Sierra is a spectacularly beautiful wildland area in the northwest of La Rioja province, whose permanent glaciers constitute the main water source of the entire valley. This mountain system also preserves a large number of animal and plant species, with some endemic species, as well as important aspects of the nation’s cultural heritage, including the Inca Trail or Qhapaq Nan. We are working with the province, the national park service and local communities to create a national and provincial parks to protect this area.

Our Ecuador Amazon program protects rainforests both by designation of areas and land purchase. In southeast Ecuador, we are supporting our lcoal partner Nature and Culture to work with the Paquisha municipality and local communities to declare a 45,000 hectare protected area. The region has exceptional biodiversity, with one of the highest concentrations of threatened plant species in the world and a wide range of endemic bird, plant and amphibian species. Natura also provided funds to our local partner Naturaleza y Culture Ecuador to complete the purchase of 78 hectares of upper Amazon rainforests along the Numbala River of southern Ecuador. This area protects one of the last such stands of giant Podocarpus trees in the world, and because of this has the highest carbon density/ha in all of Latin America.
