EXPANSION OF

THE HUMBOLDT RESERVE

 

The Humboldt Archipelago is one of the most biodiverse and ecologically important parts of the Chilean coast and the southeast Pacific. The Humboldt Archipelago is perhaps the finest example of Humboldt Current kelp forests in the world, and is home to 80% of the world’s endangered Humboldt penguin population, as well as many other seabirds species, sea lions, sea otters, dolphins and orca. It is also a summer feeding ground for endangered bluefin and humpback whales. The Humboldt Archipelago contains ancestral fishing grounds for local communities and is a growing pole for ecotourism, backed by a community that calls for sustainable development and education.
