The fauna of the province of Misiones, notable for its wonderful variety, was highly assaulted: one by the irrational and uncontrolled hunting of species with economic value (for their fur or leather), on the other removing the forest as natural habitat, which significantly decreased the chances of survival of the species.

As a result several species at virtual extinction was implemented to avoid the ban on hunting and fishing at certain time of year, as well as the creation of parks and nature reserves, thus protecting not only wildlife, but also flora of the province, ie its natural ecological balance.
