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.

Considering that this place has a fundation for preserving nature it's kind of contradictory to ask for a printed coupon to access with a 2 for 1 promotion. Putting that aside is a well care place to spend 4 or 5 hours with the family. They add a barbacue store with very good food at reasonable prices. The only things... More

Cannot say enough good things about this zoo, definitely worth the annual pass if you live within the city or North side. It is outside of the city, so you'll have to deal with traffic getting there, but once you arrive you will not be disappointed. It has all the bells and whistles of any other world class zoo, absolutely... More

Excellent zoo layout. One of the best zoo layouts I have seen. The park houses a great many animals. The park was reasonably priced. The food was what you'd expect at a zoo, nothing special. We had a great time and it is definitely a day's activity.

My husband and I visited Temaiken on our trip to Buenos Aires, and loved it. Absolutely beautiful park with first-world facilities. I have been to many zoos and preserves in the US, and never before have I seen such active, healthy animals! There wasn't a guidebook in English, but the map offered a lot of intuitive wayfinding. The 360 degree... More

Beautiful and charming place! Visual communication is pretty well done, the entire zoo has charts explaining their species conservation programs, species' IUCN conservation status and info about their natural habitats. I think Temaiken fullfil every zoo's dream of touching people's hearts about the importance of nature's conservation and animal welfare in captivity.

the best in Buenos Aires is Temaiken, the animals are HAPPY, not like the zoo in Palermo...is a big difference between the two zoo's, one is for the animals Temaiken the other one no comments. If you visit Buenos Aires is only 30 minutes from town , nice and safe highway, I strongly recommend Temaiken.

A first world level. One beautiful and very new zoo park. I have never seen so much space for animals like in this park. Here you can see how big, beautiful and healthy they are. Also take your time at the aquarium and the birds session of the park.
