Hatching season - Strengthening Partnerships!

One of our main challenges is strengthening the genetic pool of the rhea population in Patagonia National Park. Reserva Quimán, a private reserve located about 1,000 km north of the park, has been a fundamental partner in achieving this. 

Our team visited the Quimán Reserve to advise and improve bird management at the center. We are happy to announce that the chicks are already hatching and will be translocated to the park in January by light aircraft.

Estancia Baño Nuevo is another important partner, as it provides us with eggs that are then incubated at the center. Unfortunately, several males abandoned their nests at the estancia, and due to heavy night frosts, it was impossible to recover the eggs in time. We hope that the eggs that are still being incubated will hatch successfully. 

Finally, we are moving forward with the administrative paperwork with the National Wildlife Service to translocate rheas from Argentina. This would be the first translocation of these birds from another country, and we plan to do so during the first quarter of next year.
