The Argentine Chaco

08 Sep 2023

The Argentine Chaco, facing rapid deforestation, showcases three key initiatives:

  • Tantanacuy Reserve: This 2,500-hectare private reserve, amid illegal clearing, protects native forests and supports ecotourism activities. It also collaborates with the Jaguar Project to conserve the region's threatened species.

  • El Cachapé Haven: A unique livestock approach allows natural pastures to thrive without introducing foreign species. The refuge focuses on sustainability and minimal intervention, highlighting the need for awareness and government support.

  • Chaco Eco-Token: An innovative financial tool that harnesses cryptocurrencies to attract international investments for environmental services, combating illegal deforestation and improving surveillance systems.

    These initiatives represent hope for the endangered Gran Chaco region, emphasising conservation, sustainable practices, and innovative finance for its survival.
