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 is lovely for a zoo, one of the best I've ever visited and certainly light years better than the recently closed Buenos Aires city zoo. I enjoy the aviaries particularly. It's a nice, short trip outside the city, a has a well designed layout and is a pleasant visit for families.

. . . an excellent zoo which compares favorably to those found in the United States. It incorporates naturalistic exhibits with education, wildlife conservation and rehabilitation, and a clean, friendly, attractive environment. It is small enough to see in a day, but has a great diversity of animals and exhibits which make it seem quite large. One of the unique... More

With young children you may want to select what you want to see, the park is really big and kid's won't walk all the way. It's also nice to check out the activities during the day so you don't miss things like the hippo being fed or the farm activities. There's also a good offer of meals/food with gluten free... More

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
