Flora and fauna watching
The varied Argentine geography plus its different climates, make this territory the Eden of the native flora and fauna watching: Colonies of maritime animals at the Atlantic Patagonia; protected species at the many National Parks, the Southern Right Whales at El Doradillo Beach; the Arrayanes Forest which is unique in the world; the Irupé flower in Chaco; petrified forests and many other natural privileges.
It is worth mentioning the four species declared National Natural Monuments: NM Southern Right Whale, which was almost near extinction but which is now in slow recovery; NM Yaguarete the biggest land predator feline in America; NM Taruca, a deer that lives at the mountain pasturelands in the Argentine Northeast; and the NM Huemul, the South Andean Deer native of the Patagonian forests.
At Iguazú National Park, the jungle hosts about 2.000 different vegetation species, 400 wild bird species, mammalian varieties and a immensurable insect world; thus converting this ecosystem in one of the richest natural environments of the country.
In spite of the development of occidental civilization, it is still possible to find virgin jungles at different places in the province of Misiones. Within this park, there are many paths and tracks to enjoy the charm and magic of this natural sanctuary. To enjoy the jungle, as much as the river, means living plentifully this perfect nature conjunction.
At Lanín, Nahuel Huapi, Los Arrayanes, Los Alerces, Lago Puelo, Los Glaciares and Tierra del Fuego National Parks senses are delighted at the sight of the flora’s beauty and variety, which finds its maximum charm at the unique larch and arrayan forests.
