The Esteros del Iberá constitutes one of the largest and most important wetland macrosystems in Neotropical America, which earned it its designation as a Provincial Reserve.
Likewise, within this extensive wetland, the second in importance after the Pantanal in Brazil, the Esteros del Iberá National Park has recently been created. With a very rich and varied bird life. Ideal for watching.
It is also one of the least altered regions of Argentina, preserving threatened species and relatively pristine habitats, although growing and diverse human activities are increasingly impacting the region.
The isolation of the contiguous river systems, its exclusive feeding by rains and its location in a transitional region between several biogeographical provinces and between tropical and temperate climates, make Iberá a particular and unique system.
One of the most salient aspects is the number of birds: more than 350 species. A community of birds that presents variations in its composition, richness, abundance and diversity in relation to biogeographic and ecological zones of Iberá.
There are some threatened species that have found in this ecosystem the only way to continue subsisting.
There is even an underwater world, despite the depth of the humedial not exceeding two meters, practically unknown.
Plants that continue to grow underwater, unknown fish, a whole underwater world of little depth, but new and fascinating even for science that has studied it very little, dedicating itself above all to underwater life in the oceans and seas.
Let's see some of the species that we have managed to photograph.
The Esteros del Iberá [Argentina] are a natural paradise for birds.
