Fundación Temaikén

We work in the conservation of native wildlife species that are threatened and / or endangered, through strategies that combine field work and actions in controlled environments. We also work on Protected Areas preserving natural habitats of our country through:
• The creation of new protected areas:
• We foster agreements, arrangements and partnerships with businesses, governments and private landowners to increase the size of regulated areas in the country, declaring private reserves or through the donation of land and the incorporation of territories in the provincial system of protected areas.
• Through an agreement with the Ministry of Ecology Renewable Natural Resources and Tourism of Misiones we obtained the statement of the Osununú Private Reserve.
