Great-great-granddaughter of Charles Darwin Visits Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve

Sarah D and RR.JPGDuring the recent inauguration of the project “Ecotourism with a Hand Lens in the Chilean Subantarctic Region”, a series of national and international authorities traveled to Puerto Williams and Punta Arenas to celebrate the Omora Park’s new initiative, financed by the Chilean Ministry of Economy. Among these, Sarah Darwin flew in from Brazil, where she is filming a new documentary about her famous ancestor, to participate with Dr. Ricardo Rozzi in the part of the event that took place in Wulaia Bay, where Darwin had some of his most crucial encounters with the Yahgan tribe (in the photo, Sarah Darwin and Ricardo Rozzi review the notes Charles Darwin took from Wulaia bay in 1833 while a Dutch film crew records the event).
