PUERTO CISNE

Location

Aysen Region, Chilean Patagonia

Project Description

​This is a large property composed of several hundred of hectares that would potentially be protected with a DRC agreement. The landscape is ecologically significant and includes: mallines (characteristic wetlands of Patagonia); regeneration of the vulnerable tree species Ciprés de las Guaitecas (Pilgerodendron uviferum) which historically was burned but is now regenerating; substantial patches of native vegetation, including several different types of forests; a portion of a river; and three lagoons. The landowners would pursue a limited development project that would strictly protect the landscape’s native vegetation.
