In the 1960s, there was great concern about the deterioration of various wetlands in Europe. In 1971, a number of countries and non-governmental organizations organized the Ramsar Convention (so called because it was signed in the Iranian city of the same name), an intergovernmental treaty that serves as a framework for international cooperation to conserve and make rational use of wetlands and its resources .

In the province of Santa Fe is located one of the so-called “ Ramsar sites ”: Jaaukanigás , the first in the province of Santa Fe and the ninth in Argentina. Representative of the Delta and Paraná Islands, it is characterized by the type of vegetation of forests and rainforests in gallery.
Jaaukanigás has a total area of 492,000 hectares and is located in the islands and coasts area of the Department General Obligado. Its landscape is characterized by an extensive flood plain, part of the alluvial valley of Paraná, where you can observe numerous streams, rivers, lagoons, madrejones, with islands that, in some cases, are low and flooded and, in others, higher.
