Flora and Fauna
The Aysén region is an exceptional place for bird watching as, due to the scarce intervention of man, the majority of the birds do not fear man’s presence and it is possible to watch them from just a few meters away. It is even possible that the curious chucao approaches you. The most notable birds in the region are majestic Andean condors, flamingos, caiquenes (wild geese), bandurrias, tiuques, falcons, friendly kingfishers, curious chucaos, hummingbirds, and a variety of seabirds such as cormorants, Humboldt penguins, albatrosses, and many more. A varied species of mammals endangered by extinction can be found, whose habitats have been declared Protected Areas or National Parks. In the channels and fjords a rich population of marine life is found, including dolphins, seals, and marine birds..
