Cape Horn is a natural laboratory for science and a fundamental territory to carry out research of global impact.

A group of international media visited the Cape Horn Biosphere Reserve on a trip organized by Fundación Imagen de Chile with the aim of publicizing the scientific research being carried out from the southern tip of the planet. 

CNN en Español and the agencies France-Presse and Thomson Reuters came to the city of Puerto Williams, the southernmost city in the world, to see the facilities of the soon-to-be-opened Cape Horn Subantarctic Center and explore the unspoiled nature that has turned the region into a key place to study the effects of climate change. 

The journalists also toured the Omora Ethnobotanical Park and Cerro Bandera accompanied by a delegation of scientists from the Cape Horn International Center, led by philosopher and ecologist Ricardo Rozzi, who explained the geographic particularities that make this region a natural laboratory for science and a fundamental territory for carrying out research of global impact. 

Cape Horn is home to the southernmost forests in the world and is one of the most pristine regions on the planet, as it still preserves more than 70% of its original vegetation.
