Cabo de Hornos | National Geographic

Editors » 4am - August 19, 2017
Cape Horn and the surrounding Magallanes region in Chile are home to a wild ocean ecosystem that includes abundant marine mammals and seabirds, and the world's southernmost kelp forests. In February of 2017, in collaboration with the Waitt Foundation, National Geographic's Pristine Seas team traveled aboard the Plan B research vessel from Punta Arenas through the Francisco Coloane Marine Park, the Magallanes fjords, Cape Horn, and the Diego Ramírez Islands, studying and filming the region's marine environment. To achieve a comprehensive survey, the team made scuba dives, used remote underwater video and open-water cameras, and deployed deep-sea drop cams to depths of over 105 meters. The resulting expedition film will be premiered on September 5th, 2017 at the 4th International Marine Protected Areas Congress (IMPAC4) in Coquimbo, Chile.
