The "Gallegos River Estuary" Environment Interpretation Center (CIERG), established in December 2011, is near the coast and within the Río Gallegos͛ Urban Coast Reserve. CIERG is a space conceived as a platform for communication, motivation, teaching and learning about our cultural and natural heritage. It aims to raise awareness and generate protection and conservation behaviors.
Asociación Ambiente Sur is in charge of the administrative and executive management of the Interpretation Center, which is the culmination of the projects developed and the awareness-raising work carried out with other state and organizations. All of this has allowed us -- due to its seriousness and continuity with quantifiable results -- to obtain the necessary funds to design and build the interpretative infrastructure at the CIERG
CIERG is the first interpretation center of its kind in Southern Patagonia built for a protected area, where residents can relate with their experience in nature through guided tours to the reserve. Italso offers an ecotourism alternative for out-of-town visitors. Its creation was the result of a joint effort by the City Government, the National Patagonian University in Río Gallegos (UNPA-UARG), plus local, regional and global nongovernmental organizations, in order to protect, preserve and increase the knowledge about the biodiversity of the Gallegos River Estuary both in local people and visitors.
