Wildlife Tours South America

Trogon Tours is a fully licensed and highly experienced nature tour operator created and managed by passionate naturalists who have been involved in nature conservation and wildlife travel since the early 1980s.  Trogon Tours offer wildlife tours in Argentina, Antarctica, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Peru and Uruguay.

As a specialist wildlife business they are supported by a fine team of expert local leaders specialising in different wildlife fields which enable them to off a gateway to the most fantastic wildlife travel adventures in the Neotropics.

Trogon Tours believe that a wildlife journey is a unique opportunity to explore nature, looking for those special places and creatures that you always wanted to see and photograph. As a wildlife tour operator, Trogon Tours’ goal is to provide highly customised, quality nature travel experiences in South America and Antartica.

They mainly cater for the independent wildlife traveller, but also international tour companies and organisers tweaking existing tour proposals to perfection in order to make the most of nature journeys.  Therefore they predominantly specialise in building tours around client wishes, rather than offering fixed itineraries running on fixed departure dates.

Trogon tours is based in Argentina, with two operational offices: one in Puerto Iguazú, right next to the spectacular Iguazú Falls and national park, nestled in one of the last pristine patches of southern South American rainforest which is home to more than 400 species of birds, and the other in Puerto Madryn, gateway to the Valdés Peninsula, a marine bird and mammal paradise on the Atlantic coast of Patagonia, home of the biggest nesting colony of Magellanic Penguins on earth, and also a breeding hotspot for several species of marine mammals.

Trogon Tours Conservation

Trogon Tours’ staff members have a strong background in nature conservation, and the company is committed to preserve and protect South America’s natural habitats and wildlife.

Every year they will select one or more conservation projects underway in regions that they visit during the tours offered and help those projects raise funds to achieve their goals. The selection criteria prioritises those projects working on habitats as a whole, and including local researchers and communities, since they believe that nature is a whole, and no link in the “chain of life” should be left out of any conservation effort.

One of the conservation project is the “Seabird Ecology and Conservation in Northern Patagonia”.

Development of coastal environments in Argentina during the last decades has brought increasing pressure on coastal wildlife. Habitat modification and disturbance are important threats to many breeding and foraging bird populations, and have led to growing concern due to rapid growth of unregulated tourism, recreation, and resource extraction activities. In addition, growing commercial fisheries and industries that generate pollution are affecting biodiversity in both coastal and pelagic waters. Seabirds are important components of these marine environments, and due to their demographic characteristics and colonial habits they are vulnerable to some human activities.

Your contribution is crucial to keep these conservation efforts going, and to help save Patagonian seabird populations for future generations.
