The region includes many diverse species of animals and more than 300 species of bird.

Argentina has done a great job preserving the land and keeping it untouched by urbanization. This land is essential to preserving wildlife and will remain important. Since 1982, part of the wetland, about 5,000 square miles, is protected. There are plans to further the protection to either include the entire wetland or increase the level of protection.

Hotel Bonaventure

While the snow continued to fall at a steady clip, my taxi pulled up outside Hotel Bonaventure Montréal. A quick departure from my cab and a few steps later, I was taken in by the distinctive style of the entrance corridor. A quick elevator ride to the lobby is necessary because Hotel Bonaventure Montréal sits on the final two floors of a 17-story business and professional complex. The hotel is located in the heart of downtown Montréal, and even connects to the city’s underground concourse.
