"It is the last great wilderness of its kind, a rare and endangered haven for some of Earth's hardiest creatures. Covering hundreds of thousands of square miles of Chile and Argentina, this wild place is known as Patagonia. In spite of its remote location, Patagonia and its wildlife are under pressure from the human footprint. For centuries, wind, geology and tempestuous seas kept Patagonia beyond the commercial reach of man. An astonishing array of wildlife flourishes in the region's nearly 347,000 square miles, including such birds as Magellanic penguins and Andean condors, land mammals such as the guanaco and puma, and marine mammals such as orcas and elephant seals.
Today, the Patagonian ecosystem is facing increasing pressure. Climate change affects both the western Andean glaciers and the tides that batter its southern shores. Sheep farming results in overgrazing and soil erosion, and beaver dams cause flooding that ravages forests. Man-made garbage, such as plastic filament, often injures wildlife. Changes in the landscape from waste and invaders mean that Patagonian flora and fauna may not survive future devastation without human intervention. Is there any hope for saving this wild place? 'Eden at the End of the World,' shows the spectacular vistas and diverse animal life of the region while highlighting an innovative conservation model that will help preserve the pristine wilderness for future generations."
