Patagonia and Falklands advice
Coming December/January I will spend 4 weeks in the Falklands and Southern Patagonia and I would like some advice on mammal watching in those areas.
I will spend the first week in the Falklands (2 nights in Sea Lion island, the rest around Stanley), in the hope to see some sea lion and killer whale action. Does any of you have any more advice on seeing other cetaceans around (especially) Stanley?
In Patagonia the main focus will be walking the O-trail in Torres del Paine, but I would also like to do some puma searching, if any of you could provide some contact details and general advice, that would be appreciated.
Does anybody also have some recent information on the chances of seeing Huemul in TdP?
I will also have some more time to travel around southern Patagonia (including the Argentinean side), does anyone know any sites for Wolfsohn’s mountain viscacha or maybe even for Marine otter? Unfortunately we do not have time for Chiloe islands…
Thanks in advance
Hi, Sorry that the Puma Guy link has proved difficult. I’ve have been able to view it again when I tried from the UK.
I also googled Wayajapuma and it came up.
There is an email address on the site of firstname.lastname@example.org if that is of any help.

It’s a long time since I was in Patagonia, so I’m of no real help for current info.
I am looking to travel to Chile in 2018 to look for Puma.
I’ve read consistently good reports about a guide/park ranger in Torres del Paine NP as THE guy to be with
to maximise the chance of Puma sightings. His website (I believe) is wayaja.wixiste.com/wayajapuma.
From my understanding he does not speak English, so you will have to persevere by contacting/emailing in Spanish.
I’d appreciate any intel that you could subsequently provide!
