Laguna Brava is a nature reserve in Argentina created in 1980 for the preservation of vicuñas and guanacos, which were endangered species. This reserve with an area of four thousand and fifty kilometers shelters a series of small ponds temporarily formed by the thaw. It is located in the west of the province, four hundred and fifty kilometers away from the capital of the Province of La Rioja and it includes sections of the Districts of Vinchina and Gral Lamadrid. It was named Laguna Brava because this is the most massive pond in the reserve with an area of seventeen kilometers of length and four meters of width. Laguna Brava is a conservation area for a variety of species of ducks, American golden plovers, black-chested buzzard eagles, falcons, pumas, and red foxes.
