This Patagonian Nature Reserve is a World Listed Heritage Site for the conservation of marine mammals. Home to the world famous Orcas who developed the hunting technique of beaching themselves on shore to prey on seals. It also plays host to many more. It is the breeding ground for the endangered Southern Right Whale as well as important populations of southern sea lions and elephant seals, to mention a few.
