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.

First time in Temaiken and was a pleasant surprise. First of all, you need to know that this is a first world attraction park where everything its carefully thought and well design (something rare for Argentina). From the layout of the park, to the maintenance, everything is spotless and well organized. All the staff is very friendly and well informed,... More

it's a visit that takes the entire day, but it worths it. There are special buses to go there or you can go by car, which I recommend. The park is big and you should read the leaflet you are provided at the entrance, where some shows are announced. We saw the one of the hippopotamus, and it was incredible!... More

It's a nice park, very organized and clean. Food is horrible and expensive. Is not a cruelty free zoo as advertised. You can see big birds in small cages, animals are in full captivity not in a sanctuary. If you care about animals don't go, you'll end up financing another animal prison.

Regarding animal welfare, we wanted to let you know that when the park was designed we took into account every species needs, respecting the space and the natural environment every animal needs so that we can recreate the animal’s habitat in nature.

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
