Overview: 

A wonderland of sky, water, grass, and birdsong, the Iberá marshlands of Corrientes Province are the preeminent wildlife habitat in Argentina and a globally important natural treasure. Esteros del Iberá, a landmark volume celebrating a peerless place, invites the reader to experience this spectacle of nature. A native son of Corrientes, world-class nature photographer Juan Ramón Díaz Colodrero, his dazzling images put the reader into the heart of the Iberá’s life-affirming beauty. Supporting essays by leading regional conservationists and other experts illuminate the Iberá’s diverse natural communities and distinctive human culture. While the area is remarkably unspoiled, innovative conservation projects are augmenting wildlife populations and returning missing native species—such as the giant anteater and the jaguar—to their rightful homes in the landscape of shining waters. The Iberá presents a stark contrast to the modern world, a place where the trajectory of land health is moving toward integrity and wildness.

About the author: 

Juan Ramon Diaz Colodrero uses his camera to get inside the magic world of nature and biodiversity, and thus contribute to the conservation of the natural beauties that the world holds. He has always been bound to nature, growing up in the wilderness, among trees, marshes and wildlife of Paraje Mora. Later, he moved to Europe, where he learned the art of wildlife photography from great photographers such as Juan Carlos Muñoz, Javier Sánchez and Eduardo Blanco. For the last two years, he has lived at the Iberá Wetlands, where he found nature in its most wild form. Currently, he provides guiding services, logistics, and accommodation at Iberá Wetlands.
