Tierra del Fuego
The island of Tierra del Fuego is the southern most province of Argentina and South America. With subpolar climates, the province is battered by strong oceanic winds and constant cool – cold temperatures. Only 30% of the province has forests and the rest is tundra, steppe, glacier and rock. The glaciers and snow capped Andes Mountains which run west and east in Tierra de Fuego contribute to the harshness of the region, but also distribute water to the dry, wind swept lands below. Native animals that inhabit the island are sea lions, condors, foxes, guanacos, hummingbirds, and owls.
Rio Grande City
The city of Rio Grande is not much to behold, even though it is the industrial capital of the world’s most southern province. Located on the east coast of the big island of Tierra del Fuego, Rio Grande has a population of about 70,000. The city was founded in 1921 and established as a result of an influx of ranchers. The productive land was then owned by only a few families, before 1925 when the Argentina Government forced the division of large private ranches through agrarian reform.
Today, the population of Rio Grande grows due to favorable wages and tax exemptions.
