Lost Worlds: Patagonia: Refuge of the Monsters
Peninsula Valdes is one of the priorities for naturalists visiting the South American continent, and it is perhaps beacuse this is the place where the observation of the great whales is easyer.
Every year during the month of July, the whales arrive to these shores of Patagonia to give birth and raise their calves. His gentle nature makes approaching to them possible to enjoying the wonderful spectacle of his jumps in the sea. Approaching the austral summer, in the month of November, these giants leave the coast of Peninsula Valdes to head south in search of more water rich in krill, their main food.
We will also witness the activities of large elephant seals during the breeding of their babies. This is the only continental enclave in the world where this happens.
Much of the Patagonian fauna is well represented in Peninsula Valdes. We also approach the guanaco and interesting Patagonian Hare or mara.
