This site is located near the Atlantic Ocean on the northeastern edge of the Patagonia Plateau in southeastern Argentina. It is a marine mammal sanctuary of global significance. As the natural breeding site for a considerable number of northern right whale dolphins (Lissodelphis borealis), South Ocean walrus and South Ocean sea lions, the site can be considered the home of many marine mammals.
