Birding and Wildlife Specialist in 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, we are supported by a fine team of expert local leaders specialising in different wildlife fields which enable us to offer 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.
We mainly cater to 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 we predominantly specialise in building tours around your wishes, rather than offering fixed itineraries running on fixed departure dates.
Trogon tours are based in Argentina, with two operational offices: one in Puerto Iguazú, right next to the spectacular Iguazú Falls and national park. It is nestled in one of the last pristine patches of southern South American rainforest, which is home to more than 400 species of birds. Valdés Peninsula is 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’ 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 we will select one or more conservation projects underway in regions that we 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. No link in the “chain of life” should be left out of any conservation effort.
One conservation project is the “Seabird Ecology and Conservation in Northern Patagonia”.
Development of coastal environments in Argentina during recent 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 the 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.
