Conservation and education in Paraguay
Para La Tierra conserves fragile habitats in Paraguay through scientific research, community engagement, and environmental education.
Far from the fast-pace of modern life, the quaint city of Pilar - ‘The City of Birds’ - is tucked away in a quiet corner of Paraguay. This beautiful town, based around the lazy ‘Arroyo Neembucu’, a large stream which feeds into the Rio Paraguay, is home to stunning tourist attractions including a handsome cathedral, cotton factory, traditional markets, and colonial style buildings.

The leafy square in the centre of town fills with mingling community members every day. At night the central plaza comes alive with locals enjoying the pleasant Pilar weather.
The cobbled streets are lined with statues of birds and other animals, as well as beautiful colourful plaques telling stories of Pilar’s history and traditions.

The main promenade borders the Paraguay river, making it perfect for an afternoon walk, or for exploring the aquatic wildlife of the region. Pilar is home to Para La Tierra’s homebase Centro IDEAL: Centre of Investigation, Development, Environmental Education and Leadership.
