ECOSISTEMAS MARINOS Y DE AGUA DULCE

Guías y textos didácticos

A través de esta guía te invitamos a descubrir los sistemas de agua dulce que acoge Patagonia, reencantarte con sus misterios, y cohabitar este hermoso territorio protegiéndolo mediante valiosas acciones en busca de un desarrollo sostenible.

Un ecosistema dulceacuícola es un tipo de ecosistema donde domina el agua dulce y es hogar para seres vivos que se adaptan a vivir en él. Desde la cordillera al mar, el sistema de agua dulce en Patagonia nace desde lo más alto de las cumbres de los Andes conectando glaciares con ríos, fiordos y océanos.

Te invitamos a conocer a los cetáceos y otros mamíferos marinos que acompañan a las ballenas azules en los alrededores del golfo Corcovado, en la Patagonia norte chilena.

Este cuento se basa en hechos reales ocurridos recientemente. Algo está cambiando en nuestros mares, y eso es lo que Bailahuén, la ballenita azul, necesita descubrir para salvar a las sei y a todas las especies.

Melimoyu: canto milenario de ballenas

En este disco se honra el canto de ballenas azules y jorobadas, que viaja miles de millas por el mar. los cantos de cetáceos fueron registrados mediante el uso de boyas maru (hidrófonos de alto alcance y complejidad), ubicadas en los principales puntos de avistamiento de ballenas del golfo corcovado. estos registros son realizados por fundación MERI desde el año 2012.
