RAMSAR - Jaaukanigás

In the 1960s, there was great concern about the deterioration of various  wetlands  in Europe. In 1971, some 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 actions to conserve and make wise 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 Islands of Paraná,  is characterized by the vegetation type of forests and forests in gallery.
 Jaaukanigás  has a total area of 492,000 hectares and is located in the area of islands and coasts of the General Obligado Department. Its landscape is characterized by an extensive flood plain, part of the Paraná alluvial valley, where you can observe numerous streams, rivers, lagoons, madrejons, with islands that, in some cases, are low and flooding and, in others, higher.

In this area  ecotourism stands out, as you can do photographic safari, fossil observation, interpretive hiking, recreational fishing, water sports (such as skiing, windsurfing, canoeing), horseback riding, cycling, walking, watching flora and fauna.

In  Jaaukanigás  , the valorization of living culture is promoted by promoting the conservation of natural and cultural resources, which invites us to enjoy an active holiday, rebuilding and valuing our environment.
