Argentina | Ansenuza NP created; will protect major shorebird area

A new national park has emerged in Argentina, where the designation of Ansenuza National Park provides additional protection for hundreds of thousands of shorebirds.

The park, which covers 1.6 million acres, provides habitat for an estimated 500,000 Wilson's Phalarope (Phalaropus tricolor) as well as for three species of flamingos (Chilean Flamingo – Phoenicopterus chilensis, Andean Flamingo- Phoenicoparrus andinus and Puna Flamingo – P. jamesi) and 30 species of shorebirds, including the Buff-breasted Sandpiper (Calidris subruficollis) and Lesser Yellowlegs (Tringa flavipes).
