Dr. Anderson pointed out to the participants from 11 countries, regional authorities and national and international press that the scientists of the CHBR actively seek out collaborators with initaitives that help demonstrate the uniqueness and value of subantarctic ecosystems.

As such, this elite annual race, held in the Magallanes Region, helps to communicate the singularity of the austral archipelago and shows how a local sustainable “tourism” activity can take advantage not only of the region’s amazing geography, but do so with respect for its natural and cultural heritage. The race will end again this year in Puerto Williams with participants and reporters visiting the Omora Park.
