Guira Oga, the Birds house
Impossible not to visit this place during our stay in Puerto Iguazu. The house of birds is one of the best options created by man to get close to nature.
Just visitor comes to Güirá Oga, he is immediately clear brochures or by guide who makes the place is unlike anything. It is a center of rescue, rehabilitation and rearing wildlife.
The idea of rescue, recover and reintroduce specimens that come to this place, either by being injured, seized or have been donated by individuals unrepentant, is the way the fauna of the province came to this place of Puerto Iguazu.
Just tour the facility to realize not only the love that is here for the animals, but also maturity and judgment with which we talk about the subject.
Not always, and this we learned during our journey, animals are reinserted in the ecosystem, the main objective of the site. Often the animal loses some of its powers and is not to be free again, which would make him easy prey if it is left in the freedom of the jungle.
The Güirá Oga Center is located on an area of 19 hectares, which is called “protected landscape” under the name of Andrés Giai, in honor of the renowned naturalist.
The place has an interesting and centenarian vegetation cover, with trees up to 30 meters high. They have identified about 40 different species, with about 50 kinds of butterflies constantly flying over the jungle environment.
The tour of the place begins in a projection room where we move visually in missionary territory and began to throb a wealth of species, which will see during the ride.
On board a vehicle prepared for this adventure, visitors are watching the different animals that houses the center. Among these are coatis, monkeys, toucans, wild turkeys, parrots and gucamayos, Macucos, hawks, eagles and owls, among many others.
But beyond that observed animals, which should be highlighted is the expertise that guides put at the service of each participant. Each animal has its name, its history and often a story that brought him there.
In these details lies the love you have for each of the species that inhabit the park, either forever because it is not possible to reintegrate into the jungle or transient time, until the animal has fully recovered to return to be free.
This is a clear example of correct work is supported by private funds because, as with most good Argentine projects, does not have any subsidies or the national state or the provinces or in power. Perhaps this is the advantage to endure over time.
