Description: Temaiken is a foundation that studies, promotes and makes information...
Temaiken is a foundation that studies, promotes and makes information available on the protection of Nature. It is based on three mainstays: RESEARCH, EDUCATION AND PRESERVATION. In order to carry out its mission of promoting the study, research, knowledge and communication of all matters related to flora and fauna, fostering a sense of respect for the preservation and restoration of the environment, Temaiken has: • A Biopark, located in the city of Belen de Escobar to communicate environmental issues and raise awareness on people, through entertainment and contact with nature. • A Natural Reserve in the Province of Misiones that works as a "biological shock absorber" for the Teyu Cuare Provincial Park, extending the protected area of the pristine rainforest. Temaiken also co-manages 2 Provincial Parks: Cruce Caballero and Araucarias, both part of the Pino Parana Forest ecosystem, also in the Province of Misiones. • Educational Programs for the purpose of "Educating to Preserve" Temaiken provides institutions with its educational programs adapted to school curricula and applicable to all levels of education: Initial, PEB, ESB, High School, Primary School, Secondary School and Special Education. This work is supplemented by Teachers Training Courses and activities with the communities located within the ecosystems under protection or to be protected. • Research and Preservation Programs. Various programs are carried out at the Foundation: Protected Areas, Endangered Species and Marine Biodiversity. These programs comprise the specific Preservation Projects aimed at achieving Temaiken's purpose: The Preservation of native species, particularly endangered species. • A Center for Reproduction of Species (CRET)where animal Rehabilitation and Reproduction programs are carried out, supporting both Preservation Programs and the authorities governing the illegal trafficking of animals. These programs focus on rehabilitating animals that are later returned to their habitat as part of various release and reintroduction programs.

Temaiken will change your view on zoos completely. The animals here have almost perfect enclosures: big, very similar to their natural habitat and with places to hide to avoid stress. It's a huge park, so it takes a complete day to visit. The instalations are in very good conditions, it has a variety of places to have lunch and with... More

I am writing this review because I was disappointed this place didn't make it on the best zoos of the world list. I have visited over half the zoos on tripadvisor's top 25 list and I would like to say this is at least in the top 5 of that list. It is well maintained and clean. The animals are... More

While it doesn't have many of the popular zoo animals (giraffe,lion,elephants,etc) it is a very well kept up park! The bird exibit was a MUST see. The birds are free flying and landed on a few ppl, watch out for poop! The animals all have very nice sized homes and are pretty active. Its a ways out of BA so... More

Everything is beautiful and charm! You can walk all along the BioPark and you can see that this is not as any Zoo in the world. The animals stay in huge cages that imitate the real environment! They're are feed with natural food (e.g. Falcon with birds, Snakes with rats, ...) and you can see that all employees love the... More

I liked seeing the animals in decent sized, and well maintained enclosures. This a very clean place which is ideal for a family outing. The only reason why I won't rate it even higher is because there aren't more birds and animals.

This is how a zoo should be. The animals look healthy and happy, as a visitor you have a nice walk in a well organized and clean park. I bought already my pase anual.

Zoo is well maintained but we were tad disappointed that there were not as many animals or birds as we had expected considering the area. Having said that, its a good place for family outing with decent size aquarium, shows and restaurant options. <br/>We had an interesting experience going to Temaiken zoo from Belgrano as we do not know castellano...

A very nice and well conservated zoo outside BsAs. Looks just like the parks you visit in the USA (gift shops, fast food, no littering or trash in the floor). The animals are in great shape, their "habitats" are clean and big. They do not seem streessed out. Lots of birds, all kinds. A very good aquarium. And there's even... More
