Site Description
The site is a wave-exposed rocky shore typical of central-northern Chile. The coastal border (including littoral zone and intertidal shore) as well as the shallow subtidal habitat (down to about 25-30m deep) has been protected from human intervention since 1982. In 2005 the marine area was declared Area Marina Costera Protegida (AMCP) de Chile (Marine Protected Area). Adjacent to the marine reserve there is a marine laboratory, Estación Costera de Investigaciones Marinas of P. Universidad Católica de Chile.
