The surroundings

The XVI ISBCW will be held at the city of Puerto Iguazú, Argentina, which is located in north-eastern Argentina, amidst the Parana Atlantic Forest, in Misiones province. Argentina and Brazil created the Iguazú National Park to preserve this neotropical biodiversity hotspot.

The Iguazú National Park, located only 17 km from the city of Puerto Iguazú, together with its sister park Iguaçu in Brazil, is among the world’s most stunning natural sites for its colossal Iguazú waterfalls. They were included in the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1984, and in 2011 they were chosen as one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature. The Iguazú River, drops vertically some 80 meters in a series of falls almost 3 km wide. The river, aptly named after the indigenous term for “great water” forms a large bend in the shape of a horseshoe in the heart of the two parks, which also constitutes the international border between Argentina and Brazil before it flows into the mighty Parana River, fewer than 25 km downriver from the park.

Large clouds of spray permanently soak the many islets and the surrounding riverine forest, creating an extremely humid micro-climate favouring lush and dense sub-tropical vegetation that harbours a diverse fauna. The surrounding subtropical rainforest has over 2,000 species of vascular plants and is home to the typical wildlife of the region: tapirs, giant anteaters, howler monkeys, ocelots, jaguars and caimans.
