Last Wild Places: Iberá | National Geographic


Iberá National Park in northeastern Argentina is part of one of the largest wetlands in South America, but much of its wildlife went extinct in the 20th century due to widespread hunting and habitat loss. Now, a dedicated team of conservationists is working hand in hand with local communities to reintroduce many of the keystone species that were lost, while also helping to preserve the region’s unique cultural heritage.

  1. 8:30 Why getting the giant river otter from Denmark and there are so many in South America??? This otter was in captivity (zoo) and an European climate as to a tropical climate…smh!!!

  2. Look at all the splendid species that should have been there naturally! It's so sad how large portions of humanity never sees any beauty or spirituality in anything at all. There have been projects like this all over the world for the longest time. As soon as the project is successful and the attention and control dies down, some farmer puts out poisoned bait to kill the competition off again, or some poachers become active or something else. Because as it turns out, we're still the same species that laid waste to the environment in the first place and our motivations have not changed. What's somewhat new though and that may save us, is eco-tourism. If the money is there, there is always hope. Tourism has it's own drawbacks though. Wouldn't it be so much better if all of humanity saw value in things beyond the realm of personal material gain.

  3. In Patagonia Argentina couple of American billionaires purchased millions of hectares of land… expelling people living in those lands… generally aboriginal people.

  4. I think National Geographic Corporation goes to different regions… in the entire world. They do the logistics… surveying the land (private and fiscal) and later on… they provide this information to American billionaires. Whom will be able to purchase the available land… and take over natural resources.

  5. I’m crying for our world. Why have humans destroyed nature for the sake of money and acquiring land?
    Now animals other than us humans are suffering their homes at lost.
    Yet even when mega corporations and governments acquire land they don’t even distribute it to the the people. People are jammed packed in urban areas.

  6. I'm very proud of you guys, regard from Indonesia, we have a lot of wild animal in Sumatera Island but we need your support to protect the animal from the extinction and hunting

  7. I had hoped to make my second visit to Esteros del Iberá this month (last time was 2012), but obviously that won't be happening now. I guess this video is as close as I can get for now.

  8. Absolutely beautiful. I never heard about Iberá. But I turned fan of them, since now.
    Wish I that the same project could be placed at Amazon's, here in Brazil.
    Thanks to NatGeo, which brought to us such beautiful images.
