Our main goal is to achieve biodiversity conservation and to sustainably manage the natural resources of the Lower Paraná Delta
The Paraná Delta wetlands are key for the wellbeing of the 14 million people living in Buenos Aires.
Among their benefits, wetlands mitigate flood risks, reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere and act as the river’s natural water filters.
Did you know that well conserved wetlands outperform forests in the capture and retention of atmospheric CO2, and therefore are the world’s leading net primary production ecosystems?
The predominance of California Bulrush (Schoenoplectus californicus) and Club Rush (Scirpus giganteus) at Reserva Achalay holds incoming tidal surges of water and releases
them back into the Delta slowly, thereby mitigating flood risk.
