Tic Toc Marine Reserve

personal experience... 

 I visited this area in 2012 with Noble Caledonia as part of the expedition team.


In early 2014 the marine reserve was officially protected and enlarged into Chiles largest continental marine reserve.


Here there are small colonies of South Amercian fur-seals.

I also saw several indviduals and mated pairs of Kelp Goose (including their young). These waterfowl are sexually dimorphic; the males are all white and the females dark brown.

There were also 'Ashy-headed Goose'.
