          Project Goal

          Train local people in three countries to protect the Gran Chaco

          Location: Bolivia, Argentina and Paraguay

          “The incorporation of local people as equal stakeholders has become the accepted paradigm for conservation the world over.”

          Erika Cuéllar is training local people in Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina as parabiologists with the aim of protecting the extraordinary biodiversity of one of South America’s last truly wild environments, the Gran Chaco. This hot, relatively inhospitable environment has the second-largest forest in South America after the Amazon.
