Cordoba is home to thousands of flamingos, will they even dance quartet? We count them and take care of them.
In February 2020, the First International Simultaneous Census of Shorebirds and Sixth International Simultaneous Census of High Andean Flamingos was conducted. The idea arises from projects to preserve the ecosystems of each region of the country . The censuses were conducted in the Mar Chiquita area. And they are relevant on a continental level, as Córdoba is home to many flamingos. Birds that are very particular, and that belong to this area.
This wetland, located in the northwest of the province of Córdoba , is a central space for native fauna. It is also known as the Sea of Ansenuza , and in the world of science it has its fame. Since it is a center of high scientific interest for its climatic qualities and its biodiversity.That is why different programs for the control and conservation of species are carried out in this area.
One of the measures taken as a central for the care of these particular birds is the census. Technical teams from the Government of Córdoba together with bird and wetland specialists from Argentina, Bolivia, Chile and Peru were in charge of doing this. The NGOs Natura International and the High Andean Flamingos Conservation Group (GCFA) also took part. This was done in order to estimate the population density of the species.
For such studies, air counts are agreed, and that is why the census was conducted from planes. Other tools for a good result were telescopes and binoculars. Also high-quality cameras, which helped to take records of the life of the flamingos. The explored territory had more than a million hectares .
The results were impressive. Actually, Mar Chiquita never ceases to surprise us. This wetland is home to 70 percent of the 400 species of birds that Córdoba has. In addition, it is one of the most important wetlands in Argentina.
