Projects in Argentina
Since 1997, between CLT and our sister foundation Conservacion Patagonica, almost 700,000 acres of land in Argentina have been purchased for conservation and eventual donation to the national or provincial governments for new or expanded parks. As opportunities arise and budgets permit, more land will be acquired.
The vast majority of these conservation lands are in Corrientes Province in northeastern Argentina. Three notable exceptions are Monte León, the dramatic coastal national park in the province of Santa Cruz, created in 2003; a small provincial park created in partnership with the Cat Survival Trust in Misiones Province; and a 37,065-acre former estancia, also in the province of Santa Cruz, which is slated for donation to enlarge the Perito Moreno National Park.
