Chilwe, La Isla De Las Aves (Chilwe, The Island of Birds)

This short film explains why migratory sea birds arrive to the island of Chiloé (Chile), and the different migrations that the birds make. It shows how important wetlands are in giving these birds shelter, as well as exposes their threats. At the same time, we can appreciate how birds have formed part of Chiloé culture, through activities such as the Migratory Birds Festival.

Chilwe, the island of birds is a film made in order to bring awareness about migratory seabirds, and the importance of preserving their habitats: wetlands.  Environmental struggles are on the rise in Chile, and coastal areas are most exposed to threats, such as industrial growth, population growth, and the pollution caused by both. With this mind, we have created this short video that brings awareness about the importance of protecting our ecological heritage in an increasingly exploited country.
