Protecting the last refuge of the blue whale?

Editors Note: The following is from Issue 8 
Rodrigo Hucke-Gaete is the director of the Blue Whale Center, a non-profit in Valdivia, Chile, dedicated to blue whale research and conservation. Huecke-Gaete, 40, has been studying the blue whale for almost two decades. Since 2003, in partnership with diverse institutions, his Blue Whale Center has been tracking blue whales on the coasts of northern Chilean Patagonia through tagging, survey and photo identification each year.  A marine biologist with a doctorate in ecology, he is also an ecology professor at Universidad Austral de Chile. In 2008, he won the prestigious Whitley Award to support his efforts to establish a marine park for blue whales, which finally came to fruition in part last year with the creation of Tic Toc Marine Park. Patagon Journal executive editor Jimmy Langman interviewed Hucke-Gaete via Skype. Excerpts: 

Twilight on the Santa Cruz River

Argentine Patagonia's most endangered river

Text and photos by Michael Gaige

Editors Note: The following is from Issue 8
At dawn, a rare moment without wind on the Patagonian steppe allows me to hear the birds and the rushing water. I pack my tent, ready my packraft, and wait for enough light. The morning provides a pleasant, if short-lived, window for passing through this unforgiving landscape. Calm air is fleeting on the steppe. In just a few hours the insistent winds will shove me off the river.

Consume and discard, the true background to all environmental problems

By Patricio Segura
It is not clear whether Albert Einstein ever actually said it, but the comment “if you want different results, do different things,” is certainly a great one. As is the similar statement “insanity is doing the same thing over again while expecting different results."

Issue 8 - Tracking Whales

Welcome to Issue 8, which features on its cover the great blue whale, the largest mammal to ever grace our planet Earth. This endangered species is increasingly sited off the coast of Chilean Patagonia, and our cover story highlights in particular the recently created Tic Toc Marine Park in Chile. This park is now providing what may become a last refuge for the blue whale in the Southern Hemisphere if climate change continues to affect their food source, which largely depends on the shrinking supply of krill around Antarctica.
