The Park rangers crew was created by the province of Chubut, on September 29, 1967, it works in the more than 400,000 hectares that make up the 11 Natural Protected Areas of the province of Chubut. Some of these men and women left and continue to make their mark in the Punta Norte Reserve.
To find the tip of the ball to the world of killer whales, I have to start talking about Juan Carlos Lopez, a reference of conservation in the province of Chubut, and all of Argentina. He was in charge of awakening the interest of the world scientific community, regarding the particular feeding behavior of the orcas family of Península Valdés, known as intentional stranding.
The beginnings of Juan Carlos Lopez as a ranger in the Reserve of Punta Norte were in 1975, with so much time in that natural scenario and as a good advance; He knew how to take advantage of having a similar approach with these animals to carry out the first studies of the behavior of the orcas ( killer whales ), which is known in Peninsula Valdes. Very little was known about them, for the lack of a permanent systematic observation. That discipline that characterizes him allowed him to sustain during the 13 years in which he carried out his task in the reserve, to make an impressive file of information about orcas and their complex family interaction. A nice book to know more about this work is the book of its own authors Orcas Between Myth and Reality.
