Twinship between Omora Ethnobotanical Park and Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park

The President of Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park Authority, prof. Guido De Zordo, has signed the agreement protocol with the University of Magallanes (Punta Arenas) and Omora Ethnobotanical Park (Puerto Williams - Isla Navarrino).
The initiative was promoted thanks to the commitment by the Councilor of Regione Veneto, arch. Oscar De Bona, within the activities to keep alive the link between Italy and our emigrants in Latin America.
The agreement includes scientific and cultural exchanges between the two areas of great naturalistic and geographical value which, although far one from the other, have several similar ecological features.
The initiative is also important to provide more opportunities to discover modern activities of compatible development in a national park for a small community of 2,000 people living a few steps from Cape Horn and the Antarctic ice cap.

On Friday 4th May 2007, at 6.00 p.m., in the municipal auditorium of Belluno, in piazza Duomo, the photographic exhibit on the Argentinian and Chilean Patagonia, with the title “Dalle Dolomiti alle Ande” was inaugurated. The author of the photos on display, shot during various journeys to South America, is Nino Martino, Director of Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park.

The event has been organized within the international cooperation project the Park has started in order to collect funds in favor of the Chilean Park of Omora.
Some of the images on display have been used for the 2008 calendar of Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park and for a postcard series.
The proceeds of the sale of the calendar and postcards will be used to finance conservation projects in Patagonia.
The proceeds will be combined with an extraordinary fund put at disposal by Dolomiti Bellunesi National Park and other public administrations.
