Esterales del Ñeembucú - Ñeembucú Wetlands (Paraguay)

Ñeembucú wetlands is at the south of Paraguay, between rivers Paraná and Paraguay, and is an extensive wetland area (about 1 million ha) of marshes, lagoons, meadows, grasslands, and forest patches. Land uses of the area are traditional, with almost only cattle grazing allowed due to especial wet conditions of the land. Access to the area is difficult, beacuse of very few paved roads, and sand roads. This area is almost unprotected by the law, and only two small IBA's are present. The bird fauna is amazing.
