Successful rhea release!

A new season of rhea releases in Patagonia National Park raises hopes for the recovery of this locally endangered species!

After several months of acclimatization, 26 "charitos" (or chicks) were released during the months of April and May and are now running free in the Patagonian steppe in Patagonia National Park. 

This is the year that most specimens will have been released since 2017, thanks to a donation of charitos (or chicks) made by Reserva Quimán, which allowed the transfer of 10 specimens from Futrono (Los Ríos region) to Patagonia National Park.

The release of rheas is the culminating stage of a reproductive process that lasts a year and is added to other actions that are carried out annually at the Reproduction Center that involve the permanent care of the breeding specimens, including the incubation of eggs, the transfer, and raising of young rheas. 

All this work is possible thanks to the public-private collaboration with the National Park Agency (CONAF) and the Livestock and Wildlife National Service (SAG), together with all those who support the work of Fundación Rewilding Chile!

THANK YOU FOR MAKING THIS POSSIBLE
