The story tells that on November 6, 114 years ago , in 1905, the expert Francisco Moreno gave Argentina three square leagues of his property, equivalent to about 7500 hectares. Located in the vicinity of Laguna Frías and Puerto Blest, west of Lake Nahuel Huapi, the scientist, naturalist, botanist and geographer donated the land to be “consecrated as a natural public park.”
This was how the primitive nucleus of the national protected areas originated, known as the “Southern National Park”, which 31 years later would be named the Nahuel Huapi National Park. For this initiating reason, every 6 November National Parks Day is celebrated.
They are protected areas that play important roles in the conservation of natural and cultural resources. Sectors of the continental or marine territory of great value in terms of their biodiversity and scenic beauty where human activities are limited, with legal protection status. Argentina has been a pioneer country in the region and one of the first in the world in the creation of National Parks.
