The story of pumas in Torres del Paine, the controversial hippopotamus of Pablo Escobar, the coronavirus and zoonotic, or the tragedy of tiger trafficking in Southeast Asia: the incredible unpublished documentaries in Chile that will be part of Santiago Wild 2021.
Chile has about 4.5 million hectares of wetlands. (I don’t know if you’re thinking the same thing as me: that’s a lot!)
To better understand this topic, these is the definition that I’ve found for wetland:
“Any normal flat area where the surface of the soil is covered with water permanently or seasonally, is a wetland”. These are natural refuges for wildlife and wild flora, sources of fresh water, recharge for aquifers and true filters for sediments and pollutants.”
