Our country houses diverse ecosystems mainly due to the fact that factors like latitude and relief have enabled the conformation of unique ecological zones, which amaze with their landscapes and the plant and animal diversity they contain.
Aware of the need to preserve important ecological sectors, the Chilean government created a National System of State Protected Wild Areas (Sistema Nacional de Áreas Silvestres Protegidas del Estado, SNASPE). It includes specific natural environments, terrestrial or aquatic, which receive state protection and a specific management for their conservation.
The system is made up of three categories: national parks, national reserves and natural monuments. In total, Chile has 95 protected wild areas, which make up 19% of the national territory.
