E-mail Print



In our cover story this issueWayne Bernhardson and Jimmy Langman write about travel in the Falkland Islands. A naturalist’s paradise, diverse birds and marine mammals like elephant seals and sea lions are in abundance. Most spectacular, there are more than a million penguins throughout the archipelago. Yet, there are serious environmental threats to that wildlife, too, as Jimmy Langman writes in a companion story. 

Also in this issue, we dig in-depth into the history of the new Patagonia National Park and the challenges ahead as it enters a new phase under the management of Chile's national park service. We interview Dee Boersma, called the “Jane Goodall of penguins” by the New York Times. Zoe Baillargeon reports on Patagonia liquors. Alex Muñoz writes about a Patagonia without salmon farming. We have a travel destination article about Ushuaia. Macarena Soler writes about the need for a law to conserve wild rivers in Chile, while Tamara Toro Teutsch implores fly fishermen to get involved in protecting rivers. Tomas Moggia recommends several hikes in Pumalin National Park. Enrique Marmentini reports on an historic climbing feat at Mount Fitz Roy earlier this year. And don’t miss the photo essay on Patagonia’s wild coast by Chilean photographer Nicolas Piwonka
