Firstly, the Humpback Whales are a cosmopolitan and very migratory species. According to the International Whaling Commission, a population of 10,000 is estimated for a part of the Southern Hemisphere. A part of the whale population travels annually to the Francisco Coloane Park to feed during the austral Summer and Autumn. Francisco Coloane was the first marine park created in Chile, located between the islands of Santa Ines, Riesco and the Brunswick peninsula, an area of high biological productivity, within its limits housing colonies of southern Fur Seals, Orcas, reproduction areas of common Sea Lions and Magellanic Penguins; as well as Skuas, Carancas (Kelp Goose) and other waterfowl species.
