This region is considered an AICA (Area of Importance for Bird Conservation). Birdwatchers will be surprised to learn that more then 300 bird species have been registered here due to the fact that this reserve operates as a natural corridor between two National Parks: Calilegua in Jujuy and El Rey in Salta. It also acts as a transition environment for the Chaco region and therefore often includes birds from this zone as well. That means that you can see more than 60% of the birds of the province in this small area. We are also half an hour driving from the dry chaco environment, where you can see different species.

Four new species for Argentina have been discovered here and it is the home of 8 globally important endemic birds of the Yungas and several others that are considered endangered or rare.
