Save San Antonio Bay
San Antonio Bay is an essential stopover site for migratory birds. Unfortunately, humans love those beaches as much as the Red Knots and Sanderlings do. The presence of vehicles, pets and people is scaring off the exhausted birds, threatening their already dwindling populations.

To capture the attention of as many tourists as possible, Aves Argentinas collaborates with local partner Fundacion Inalafquen on the yearly Shorebird Festival of San Antonio Bay, where they inspire children and adults of the local community and tourists to take care of shorebirds and their environment through educational activities, art, workshops and birdwatching trips.
