Historically there has been a conflict between wildlife and cattle raising. On one hand, people who have been dedicated to sheep farming, the most important productive activity in the area for more than a century, have seen the puma and other species that prey on livestock as an enemy, suffering the constant loss of livestock. And on the other hand, the wildlife, especially the puma, has been relentlessly hunted.
We want to show that you can live in harmony by making changes, with a respectful look on both sides.
Our team of the conservation area is in charge of carrying out concrete actions that promote the conservation of wildlife, working alongside the cattle raising and tourist areas.
PALEONTOLOGY AND ARCHEOLOGY
At 1.270 meters above sea level, at the top of Cerro Guido you can find the "chenque" or highest indigenous cemetery found in Southern Patagonia, which opens a window to the Tehuelche culture.
Findings from a world that no longer exists are turning Cerro Guido into one of the most important dinosaur fossil reserves in Chile and South America.
