Enrique Bucher has been working for decades on research, development and implementation of a multiple-species management system for the Gran Chaco semi-arid savannahs of South America. His efforts have focused on a wide range of ecosystem function and management issues, including multi-use patterns, Indigenous rights and capacity-building, pest management and conservation of parrot species. Bucher is also active as an international consultant in the evaluation of environmental impacts of the proposed Paraguay-Parana Hidrovia initiative, a continental-scale waterway project that may affect the Brazilian Pantanal and other important wetlands.
