Valdes Peninsula, Argentina

Each winter, thousands of Southern Right Whales migrate from their feeding grounds near Antarctica to breed in the ValdÈs peninsula, alongside large colonies of sea lions and elephant seals. Krill, the whales’ main source of food, are threatened by higher ocean temperatures and melting sea ice around the Antarctic, which would in turn hurt the whales’ chances of survival.

Good, our Eco Lodge is in Puerto Piramides and we live every day in constant contact with the whales and the rest of nature that surrounds us.
