The Environmental Control Brigade (BCA) of the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development rescued today in the province of Corrientes a group of female black alligators that were suffering the consequences of drought and fires, according to official information.

In an operation carried out in the towns of Lomas de Vallejos and Cerrudo Cué, in northern Corrientes, BCA personnel rescued alligators in puddles of water, in a context of extreme drought that has lasted two years and grassland fires that occurred in the region last week.

The specialists moved the animals to the closest area with availability of large estuaries, where lagoons and wetlands are connected.

The BCA, dependent on the Inspections Directorate of the Environmental Control and Monitoring Secretariat, is made up of specialized agents and was launched in 2020 as an initiative to optimize and expand the powers of the Ministry’s body of inspectors.
