“Carpintero” Inaugurates the Academic Year for Ecotourism Students at Andres Bello University

Arango’s lecture on the Magellanic woodpecker (“carpintero”) as a charismatic flagship species of the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve demonstrates yet again that the wings of this great bird provide the perfect vehicle to “transport” the biocultural conservation activities of Cape Horn to the rest of the world.
