This is the last newsletter of the Ibera reintroduction of extinct species project.

http://proyectoibera.org/download/boletines/boletin_27.pdf

 

Further news about the collared peccaries reintroduction project, macaws and pampa deers reintroduction projects.

The foundation is still looking for other jaguars to start with the breeding program. Further groups of pampa deers and peccaries were reintroduced to set further populations.

 

Unfortunately, the foundation and filantropist Douglas Tompkins passed away this week after an accident while he was kayaking in Patagonia.

I hope the Foundation Conservation Land Trust will continue this amazing work and finish the project of restorations of species in the Ibera and further lands they want to restore and donate to the Chilean and Argentinean nations to protect them as National Parks.

I read about his death in the papers and read some of the obituaries very sad that he should have died as a result of such a seemingly minor accident.

I hope as you say that the work will continue just by coincidence there happened to be an article in the latest BirdLife magazine about the reintroduction of the red & green (or green-winged) macaws.
