VIDEO — Rewilding Argentina: A journey to help nature heal | Talk to Al Jazeera: In the Field The Ibera wetlands are a 1.3 million-hectare (3.2 million-acre) natural reserve in northeastern Argentina. But in recent years, wildlife in the area has suffered because of rapid development, industrialised agriculture and uncontrolled cattle grazing. Argentina is one of the world’s top food producers. Beef and grain are some of its main exports. And now, as the country stretches its agricultural capabilities even further, several conservation strategies are being tried out and, it seems, some of them are working. On this edition of Talk to Al Jazeera: In the Field, Teresa Bo meets some of those determined to work on rewilding Argentina. | By Teresa Bo | Aljazeera — Apr 24, 2021
