In the coastal lagoons of Uruguay we collaborate closely with livestock producers to preserve the habitat of migratory birds while achieving an adequate productive performance.

The program is composed by several national and international institutions, and includes an interdisciplinary team from the biological, agrarian and environmental sciences and communications.

This program is part of the WHSRN, the Western Hemisphere Shorebird Reserve Network.
