Bela Vista Ecological Refuge, Foz do Iguacu

4.3
#1 of 15 in Wildlife in Foz do Iguacu
Put on your hiking shoes and get to know the region's varied fauna and flora at Bela Vista Ecological Refuge. The name of this sanctuary means "Beautiful View," and there is much beauty to see in this preservation area created in the 1970s and now providing animal and plant protection, research opportunities, environmental education, and even the city's water supply. Take a guided tour to follow trails amidst the woods and see up close animals native to this area. You can stand face-to-face with jaguars, capuchin monkeys, and skunks...in their enclosures, of course. Guides will show you forest species unique to this part of the world, such as the guaimbê vine that, while growing, embraces a nearly 300-year-old Angico Gurucaia tree. You can choose to walk one, or all, sanctuary trails. On the Trail of the Waters, for example, you can learn how important it is to conserve water springs and other water sources. Keep in mind that each of these walks may last up to two hours, so comfortable clothes and shoes are highly recommended.

And are also made from native plants seedlings. On the first Monday of every month is made the donation of a change of trees native to the visitors. The visit is quite interesting, it's worth it.
