Flora and Fauna

Species present in Parque Glaciar Mosco

Since 2008 Round River Conservation Studies has been exploring Parque Glaciar Mosco and the species that live  in the park. Now we will share with you two lists that include the species that have been seen. In the case of flora, some investigation transects have been stablished to see more carefully, and in the case of fauna, their identification were through observation of feces, footprints, trap cameras, and (in the case of birds) sounds.

  • Those species with conservation issues are highlighted in green and the non-native species are highlighted in yellow.
