Natural Events Log

The remoteness of Golfo de Penas makes Expedition HF27 special in and of itself. Trained on-board biologists will be observing and recording all sightings of aquatic and terrestrial life throughout the expedition, including dolphins, whales, and birds. These findings will be published in an ongoing biogeographical database with Fundación Huinay, and certain species will be submitted to the open-source, global OBIS database. If documented with photo or video, sightings will also be published under “Media” on this website.
