Private Wildlife Refuge


Project description

In 1996 Carlos Sandoval, ower of Yacutinga, and his friend Michael thought to built an Eco-Lodge in Argentina, a pioneering project at the time, adhereing to the concept of sustainable tourism.

Works to built Yacutinga Lodge started in 1998, the idea was a private responsible management of one of the last remaining Misiones rainforest patches.

Yacutinga was then declared Private Wildlife Refuge as a conservation area thanks to the advice of the Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina. This statement was unprecedented in Argentina and precursor of a more ecological approach.

Today Yacutinga Lodge bears the imprint of the ecosystem that shelters it.

Yacutinga Reserve today have planted more than 30,000 native trees, gives labour to an excellent local team and have positioned the Argentina Rainforest as a top ecotourism destination.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
