The Southern Chile Environment

The environment in Southern Chile is one of the most fragile and unique in the World. Just a look around any of the other sections of All Southern Chile, should convince you that the environment is one of southern Chile's two greatest asset; the other is the People. We hope to collect together here as much information as possible regarding the environment and environmental protection efforts in southern Chile.

img_4766_sinrepresas_250.jpg For many months we have been following the progress of the "Patagonia sin Represas" movement in Southern Chile. The organization has launched a very strong Public relations campaign across Chile to fight the Endesa power company and others in the Chilean government that would destroy thousands of acres of the Baker and Rio Pascua river valleys in the Patagonia. This very misdirected attempt to solve Chile's power problems by building hydro electric dams and sending power all the way to Santiago has gained speed under President Bachelet's administration in Chile. We happened to come across the recent horseback protest on the road from the Balmaceda airport and as they marched through downtown Coyhaique towards the central square.

Well the lake is now returning. So was this a case of Global Warming in Southern Chile?
