Omora Park Manager, a Transdisciplinary “Sub-Antarctic Inhabitant”

rodrigo_molina.jpgSince September 2008, Rodrigo Molina has worked as the Manager of the Omora Park, financed by the Institute of Ecology and Biodiversity to help implement one of the three Long-Term Socio-Ecological Research Sites in Chile. A veterinarian by training, Rodrigo is currently finishing a Masters in Conservation at the University of Chile, using the RĂ³balo watershed as a model for the creation of a management plan that harmonizes use and conservation in association with criteria from various governmental agencies such as the General Direction of Water and the Agriculture and Livestock Service. However, Rodrigo is also a sculptor and was recently notified that his project entitled “Sub-Antarctic Inhabitant” was favored for funding by the Regional Art Council. The project will consist of a series of sculptures and engravings that reflect the experience of living in the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve.
