The Biodiversity of Pullao Marsh
Just across from the Tierra Chiloe hotel, one finds what many believe to be the island’s best spot for birdwatching: Pullao Marsh.
It is about one kilometer long and the seasonal home to thousands of species migrating from the northern hemisphere, such as the Hudsonian godwit, the whimbrel and the Rhynchops niger, among others.
“It truly is an exceptional place to birdwatch. Bird species change throughout the seasons, flocking there for food; this of course allows us to study their behavior and take good photos,” said Franco Eyzaguirre, Tierra Chiloe’s Assistant Manager of Excursions.
By using binoculars and paying close attention to birdsongs and calls, guests explore Pullao Marsh and discover more deeply Chiloe’s rich natural world. Both experts and amateurs find the experience highly memorable.
However, this important ecosystem is also fragile. For this reason, Tierra Chiloe and its entire excursion team are committed to the marsh’s preservation, developing practices that promote sustainable management and protection of its biodiversity.
