Esteros del Ibera
Esteros del Ibera

Contents

Overview

In the heart of Corrientes province and 1000 kilometres north of Buenos Aires you will find Esteros del Ibera, the great marshlands of Argentina (also called the Pantanal of Argentina). The nature reserve, founded in the year 1983, covers over 13,000 km2 of marshes, lakes and islands.

In the year 2002 Esteros del Ibera was put on the list of reserves of fresh water systems by the Ramsar convention, especially because of the area's unique biodiversity and the multitude of endangered plants, birds and wildlife. Over 350 species of birds can be found in the Ibera.
