In the far north of Argentina, at the border with Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, the Missiones region covers more than 29,000 km². This area, which has suffered heavy forest loss due to the establishment of agriculture, is now protected within 11 different forms such as national parks and nature reserves. Fortunately, the tropical forest that yet covers the rest of Missiones is rich in its biological diversity and the many endemic species that inhabit it. Hence, this fauna is nowadays still in danger due to unmeasured and illegal deforestation. This has resulted in the loss of their habitat… Guïra Oga, a self financed animal shelter, was set up to protect, educate, rescue and reintroduce threatened animals.
