view from bridges island to "isla de lobos " ( island sea lion ) island in beagle channel. wildlife in beagle channel are rich in birds and marine mammals, fish and diverse invertebrates.
the original inhabitants of the isla bridges were the yamana, a nomadic tribe that moved between the islands by canoe. the yamana developed a natural resistance against the sub-antarctic climate by smearing their bodies with seal oil which may have been the reason why their body temperature was 1 degree higher than humans today. the region was named " tierra del fuego" (the land of fire) by the early european explorers who saw the dotted yamana camp fires on the islands throughout the beagle channel.
