There are so called because living species that are important for nature and some of them are even at risk of extinction.
An IBA is an area of international importance for bird conservation. Normally provides essential habitat for one or more species of birds.
These sites may have endangered bird species with restricted distribution range, which are representative of a biome or concentrations of birds in many breeding sites during migration or on their wintering sites.
Aves Argentinas has published one of the most anticipated conservation works: the first national inventory of valuable sites for conservation of birds and environments. This is the book "Important Areas for Bird Conservation in Argentina, priority sites for conservation of biodiversity".
The publication of 524 pages, has excellent photographs, charts, maps and the work of specialists in the field. Information on the IBA will be updated regularly on the website www.avesargentinas.org.ar
In Argentina there are 273 IBAs and Santa Fe are 7 of them.
In Argentina there are 1,000 species of wild birds, with the privilege that many of them are only found in this area of the world. The problem that 'shadows' the good news is that due to different causes such as hunting and illegal trafficking of wildlife, about 10% of these birds are in danger of extinction.
In this context, the IBA Program, which are Areas Important Bird-comes to play a key role because it is based on identifying, documenting and maintaining a network of places that are critical to the survival of birds.
