Twenty-two national parks preserve large areas of these varied environments and protect wildlife (much of it unique) such as caimans (or yacaré), pumas, guanacos (a lowland relative of the upper-Andean llama), rheas (similar to an ostrich), Andean condors, flamingoes, various marine mammals and unusual seabirds such as Magellanic penguins.
