Scientists at Work: Exploring Chilean Patagonia’s Fjords

Stat: 80,000. Chilean Patagonia has more than 80,000 kilometers of coastline, the longest in the world.

Story: In the latest installment of our “Scientists at Work” series, Pew marine fellow Vreni Häussermann talks about Chilean Patagonia’s diverse ecosystem. The region is a near-pristine wilderness like no other—but this mostly unexplored wilderness is at risk. Häussermann hopes her research will help support efforts to secure a sustainable future for Chilean Patagonia and the marine life in its fjords.
