Iguaza National Park

Iguaza National Park in Argentina is one of the world's largest and most impressive waterfalls. The area of the park was inhabited 10,000 years ago by the hunter-gatherers of the Eldoradense culture. The park was created in 1934 to protect one of the greatest natural beauties of Argentina, the Iguazu Falls, surrounded by the subtropical jungle.

Iguacu National Park (1939) in Brazil and Iguaza National Park (1934) in Argentina. Both the parks are UNESCO World Heritage sites. Both parks were created to preserve the vegetation, wildlife, and scenic beauty associated with the falls.

The park would be part of the proposed Trinational Biodiversity Corridor, which aims to provide forest connections between conservation units in Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina in the Upper Parana ecoregion.

The fauna of the park includes several rare and threatened species: jaguar, jaguarundi, South American tapir, ocelot, tirica, anteater, the black-fronted piping guan, the harpy eagle, and the yacare caiman.
