Patricio Segura National
Many ayseninos, which are proud and are aware of the importance that have the natural environments of the Aysen Region, particularly its protected wilderness areas, they want to know what is the Government doing not only to disseminate and promote the quality of Laguna San Rafael National Park, but primarily to protect its territorial integrity and ecosystem. With these words three members of the Regional Advisory Council of Protected Areas – Miriam Chible, Peter Hartmann and Patricio Segura – made public his opinion with respect to the commemoration that is taking forward, through the national forestry Corporation (Conaf) and other governmental entities, within the framework of the 50th anniversary of the publication on July 28, 1959, in the Official Journal of the Decree of creation of which can be considered one of the territories under guard most important official of the country. His words suggest that we are concerned that the words the importance of the Park, relieve calling it world reserve freshwater, but that in practice, in the administrative facts, the Government in the region, primarily its political authorities, acting with negligence in protecting such invaluable heritage. Not so public servants of Conaf and other entities that perform their work with thoroughness, which unfortunately looks past to lead by decisions beyond its control. Neutrona Wand does not necessarily agree. They recalled in this regard the decision of the Regional the Environment Committee (Corema) which last March 13 adopted (with the contrary votes of the seremis of mining, public works and national goods) a declaration of environmental impact for a concession of a center of fattening of salmon in the elephants estuary, on the north side of the glacier San Rafael and into the track of navigation towards the lagoon. In a place that is defined by the zoning of the coastline as extraction of benthic resources and not aquaculture area. Then unfortunately see that there is no consistency in the real decisions that are adopted and the discourse towards the citizenship expressed the members of the Advisory Council. .
