Issue 8 - Tracking Whales

E-mail Print
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.

We also feature in this issue an exciting kayak expedition by Rodrigo Poliche into rarely traveled areas of the wild Puelo Valley; Michael Gaige pens an article about Argentine Patagonia’s Santa Cruz River, which is threatened by hydroelectric projects; and a photo essay from Carlos Gutierrez displays the amazing power of volcanic eruptions witnessed by southern Chile over the past several years. And as always, don’t miss our travel section and regular columns on fly fishing, trekking, mountaineering and the environment.
