The province of Corrientes declared a natural monument to Capuchino Iberá, an endangered bird that will become protected against all risks.
The Chamber of Senators of Corrientes gave half sanction to a bill c entralized in the Capuchin Iberá . It is a new species , whose scientific name is Sporophila iberaensis . Its discovery was made by Conicet researchers Adrián Santiago Di Giacomo and Cecilia Kopuchian. Both dependent on the Laboratory of Conservation Biology of the Center for Applied Ecology of the Litoral (Cecoal). The initiative belongs to the Ombudsman of the Province, César Vallejo Tressens and represents a triumph in the care of the local fauna.
The recognition carried out by the Correntine Legislature is of great importance because it implies absolute protection of the bird . In this way, the norm implies that measures are arranged and taken to deepen their study and that of their habitat . All with the aim of fully ensuring its conservation and preventing its extinction in any way. It should be noted that we are talking about a class that circulates exclusively in the Esteros area of Iberá .
The draft drafted consists of eight articles , including harsh penalties for those who fail to comply with it. Under this line, penalties are established with fines of up to a thousand salaries of the Director of Parks and Reserves of Corrientes . In the meantime, the implementing authority will be that provincial body. However, it was determined to notify the National Gendarmerie and Argentine Naval Prefecture of the measure. The same will happen with the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development of the Nation and Ministry of Tourism of the Nation.
In this regard, many institutions are involved in such legislation and are concerned about supporting them. Some of them are the National Parks Administration, the Wildlife Authority of the Nation and the National University of the Northeast. Also, the Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina, Aves Argentinas, Conicet, Birdlife International and International Union for Conservation of Nature, among others.
The research carried out in 2016 in this regard yielded information of extreme relevance. There, it is indicated that the cappuccinos are a kind of endemic birds coming from South America . As for their contexture, they have small size and reach the eight grams of weight . They also inhabit pastures and mesopotamian wetlands .
They feed on seeds of native grasses and apparently like to travel a lot , as they spend it migrating . Under this line, they reproduce in the lands of Corrientes, especially in the Iberá and its surroundings. Then, they head north in the winter to central Brazil and eastern Bolivia. They're too adventurous to want to lose, aren't they?
It should be noted that, by the end of June, five red macaws were released in the Iberá Esteros and totaled 15 copies in total. This is part of an initiative by which authorities attempt to found a new wild population . It is that this species had been extinction for a hundred years because of illegal and indiscriminate hunting .
In addition, it seeks to recover the native fauna of the protected area of wetlands in the region. Let us not forget that we are talking about an ecosystem spanning 12,000 square kilometers in the northwest of the country. won the title of being the second largest in the world . Accordingly, the project is supported by the Government of Corrientes and National Parks in recognition of their urgent needs .
