Esteros del Iberá is a system of streams, marshes, lagoons and swamps stretching over approximately 14% of the territory of Corrientes Province. The indigenous communities of the wetlands inhabited the area as early as in the 9th century. They called the place “I – Berá,” Guarani for “shining waters.”
The area is home to countless endangered animal species, and is one of the largest nature reserves in Argentina.
The wealth of the Iberá Wetlands goes beyond biodiversity, as the land has witnessed numerous historical and cultural events that helped shape the identity and character of the region.
