In Central Chile, Sphenisco cooperates with the Municipal Museum of Natural History in San Antonio under the direction of José Luis Brito. The team of the Natural History Museum sees about
the everyday care and fostering of ill and injured animals and organizes environmental education at schools of the surrounding fishing villages. Moreover, they enable fast intervention in case of illegal keeping of animals and take care of ecological habitat conservation.
