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


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.
