"Argentina's National Park Administration is part of the National State, and has been created to protect and to offer to the world, emblematic samples of the natural and cultural heritage. The Administration has 37 protected areas, covering approximately 3.700.000 hectares (around 400 provincial protected areas also exist in our country, covering approx. 17.900.000 hectares).
To have protected areas is to be aware of the country's richness to plan its future and develop its present. Thus, protected areas must become tools for sustainable development, and as such true opportunities of growth, work and social equity".
