Who are we?

Karukinka is a private park, austral and remote, located on a peninsula of Tierra del Fuego, at the southern tip of Chile. Is difficult to access, but its almost infinite 300,000 hectares are open to those who wish to venture between their ancient lenga beech forests, its always snowy mountains and lush wetlands with native flora and fauna.

Karukinka, owned by Wildlife Conservation Society, and managed by its office in Chile, offers an innovative approach to biodiversity conservation, generating knowledge, preserving the land and educating and integrating local and national community.

In Karukinka, the skies are a paradise for Black-faced Ibis, Black-necked swans (the largest in South America) Magellanic woodpecker, Austral parakeet, Magellanic Tapaculo, Patagonian tyrant, cormorants, black-browed albatrosses and condors. Southern river-otter, leopard seals, dolphins, seals and southern elephant seals inhabit its shores. Southern beech, Antarctic beech, Evergreen beech, Winter’s bark, Chilean firebush, Magellan’s Mayten, wild strawberries, carnivorous plants and 415 other vascular plants are part of the leafy vegetable landscape where culpeo foxes, guanacos and tuco-tucos roam
