Patagonia Azul (Argentina)

Imatge The Patagonia Azul Biosphere Reserve is located in the south of Argentina on the coast of Chubut province. The site encompasses a coastal area with the greatest biodiversity on the Argentinean coastline, as well as many cultural and historical values. It also includes important breeding, feeding and migration sites of different species of birds and mammals. It hosts the largest colony of Magellanic penguins in the world, accounting for almost 40% of the global population. The site has a very low human population density, the only town being Camarone. Close to five percent of the town’s permanent population belong to indigenous ethnic groups, including the Mapuche and Tehuelche.
