Rare marine species and habitats in extreme southern Chile have come under protection in the Diego Ramírez-Drake Passage marine park.
Approved last year and entering into force last month, it will be the most southerly park in the Americas and provide a 144,390 square kilometre refuge for endangered penguins, albatrosses and whales. It will also protect important seabed formations.
