New chicks arrive at Patagonia National Park
Nuevos polluelos llegan al Parque Nacional Patagonia

For the first time, we received ten chicks donated by Quimán Reserve breeding center located 800 km north of the park. This allows not only to increase the number of rheas but diverse genes to the wild population.

Por primera vez, recibimos diez polluelos donados por el centro de cría Reserva Quimán, situado a unos 800 km al norte del parque. Esto permite, no sólo aumenta el número de ñandúes, sino también diversificar los genes de la población silvestre. 

 

Fourteen Darwin’s rheas are released
Catorce ñandúes son liberados

A new flock of young rheas is now roaming the Patagonian steppe after the 5th rhea release from the Darwin’s rhea Breeding Center in Patagonia National Park. Since the program started in 2014, we can proudly say that the population has tripled and expanded its territory by 30%.


Una nueva bandada de ñandúes jóvenes recorre ahora la estepa patagónica tras la quinta liberación del Centro de Reproducción del ñandú en el Parque Nacional Patagonia. Desde que se inició el programa en 2014, podemos decir con orgullo que la población se ha triplicado y ha ampliado su territorio en un 30%.
