I start to tell you from this post my stories going through the main National Parks of Argentina.

In some of them I have dedicated myself to bird watching, in others I have photographed the morphology of the terrain, its fauna and its plants, while in others I have simply dedicated myself to admiring the stunning nature and its landscape.

By way of example, I tell you that in Argentina, National Parks are the most important protected natural areas since they allow biodiversity and ecosystems to be conserved in the most natural way possible.

It includes a large number of islands, streams, lagoons and streams near the Paraná river.

They also protect paleontological and archaeological sites; they promote environmental education, scientific research and nature tourism.

In this way, the cultural diversity and sustainable development of local communities are guaranteed.

We start with one of the recently created National Parks of Argentina: the PreDelta National Park, the gateway to the Paraná Delta.

The images speak for themselves.

Much of the biodiversity comes from the North of the country as a consequence of sediments carried by the Parana river.

Location.

The Pre-Delta National Park is located in Diamante, Entre Ríos province. It has an area of 2,608 hectares belonging to the Delta and Islas del Paraná ecoregion.

Created towards the end of 1991 the name comes from the criteria of the specialists who called the initial section of the Upper Delta Pre-Delta. [Source] (https://www.argentina.gob.ar/parquesnacionales/predelta)

Fauna.

There are about 260 different bird species as stated by the park ranger.

Most of them adapted to the aquatic environment since 60-70% of the park's surface are wetlands.

There are also many otters which are used (their meat and leather) for human consumption.

Hunting is allowed to people who come to the islands only to provide their food and in a limited quantity, taking into account that this animal is not in danger of extinction.

Fishing is also allowed. There are many species of fish whose fishing is allowed for the survival of the inhabitants.

In other words, on the one hand it is about preserving the environmental resource, but on the other hand (unlike other national parks) they allow themselves to take advantage of their resources to make the environment more economically sustainable.
