Bring Back the Jaguar
to One of the Last
Patches of Chacoan Forest.

Rewilding Argentina has the opportunity to acquire 13,000 hectares of land adjacent to El Impenetrable National Park, on the shore of the Bermejo river. Protecting these last patches of standing Chaco Forest, long threatened by logging and slash and burn agriculture, is strategically important and crucial for the release of the newly born jaguar cubs in order to generate a new jaguar population in this region where they are virtually extinct. Purchasing this vital land will allow us to protect it, and the fragile wildlife within it, from poaching threats that surround them.

The Gran Chaco ecoregion contains South America's second largest continuous forest after the Amazon. In this vast and diverse forest, quebracho, algarrobo, and palo santo trees, along with gallery forests, grasslands, marshes, and lakes are the home of threatened species like the Chacoan peccary, the giant armadillo, the giant anteater, the tapir, the maned wolf, and the ocelot, among so many others.



One of the last wild jaguars in Argentina, Qaramta, and his recently wild-born cubs, are also at home there.

In 2014, El Impenetrable National Park was created, covering 128,000 hectares of this forest, to the south of the Bermejo River.



It remains a goal to protect the lands on the north side, which today are often used for hunting and timber extraction.

Donate Now Your donation will be made through Lookfar Conservation, a U.S. 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Lookfar will transfer 100 percent of all donations received to Fundacion Rewilding Argentina to acquire, protect, and restore land adjacent to El Impenetrable National Park. U.S. donations are tax-deductible.

El Impenetrable National Park was created on lands of a former ranch that spanned over two provinces divided by a river: the Bermejo. The part of the ranch on the north side of the river is not part of the National Park and is not protected. 

In fact, it is currently being divided into parcels for timber extraction and ranching. The 100 kilometers along the Bermejo River, which today is the northern limit of El Impenetrable National Park, are often used by sport fishing and hunting that put at risk the survival of many species but, above all, the jaguar, which is critically endangered in the Chaco region and in Argentina.



We have the chance to Protect and Rewild the northern side of El Impenetrable, and Rebuild the communities around the park.





What is Rewilding?

Rewilding is the undoing some of the damage we’ve caused, by reestablishing species that have been driven out, and then stepping back to let nature repair itself.

Rewilding means Recovering the lost interactions of nature.

It's about understanding that we are one species among many, bound together in an intricate web that ties us to the natural environment and all living creatures on the planet.


Wild habitats, with reestablished populations of keystone species—including apex predators—are capable of supporting life's full variety and richness, while also providing new opportunities to create economic vitality and generate livelihoods linked to nature's vitality.

Apex predators, usually large carnivores, can modify the abundance and behavior of their prey and competitors, increasing biological diversity and positively affecting communities and the functioning of ecosystems.


And functional, whole ecosystems provide life-supporting functions that benefit animals, plants, and people alike.

We can return the planet to what it was. Reintroduce species, and Rebuild Communities. With Respect, we Restore, we Rewild.

Together we can make a difference. Donate today and Rewild with us.
