Shelter- GüiráOga The bird house
The bird house
Description of the ride:
The GüiráOga wildlife refuge (“the house of birds” in Guaraní language) was born based on the need to have an establishment that is located in the same missionary jungle and will work with the native fauna of the place.
It was founded on August 23, 1997 by Jorge Anfuso and Silvia Elsegood, naturalists and specialists in the rehabilitation of raptors, current directors of the refuge.
The 19-hectare site on which GüiráOga is located has the category of Protected Landscape and is called “Andrés Giai”, in homage to the renowned naturalist (Provincial Law No. 3,468). GüiráOga is surrounded by protected natural areas such as the Iguazú National Park in the southern limit, the Peninsula Provincial Park and other protected areas in the missionary north, where today the greatest biodiversity of wildlife is concentrated.
Due to its location, GúiráOga can give a quick response to the authorities when it comes to rescue animals and have the opportunity to recover successfully.
The construction of the facilities was carried out avoiding the deterioration of the jungle, so that the refuge is covered by a centennial vegetation cover, where up to 40 different species of trees have been identified, measuring some up to 30 meters.
