Chilean Patagonian naturalists Gladys Garay and Oscar Guineo will present the findings from their wildlife studies on the Andean condor and huémul deer at Pajarito Environmental Education Center, 7 p.m. on Sept. 5.
The huémul deer are an endangered species native to the mountains of Argentina and Chile in the Patagonia region.
The Andean condor, a threatened species, is a large, black vulture.
The Andean condor is a national symbol of several South American countries, and it has traditionally played an important role in the folklore and mythology of the region.
The duo will entertain with findings and stories of these fascinating animals.
The event is free to attend, and no advance registration is required.

Together they have written and published various books and maps on the flora and fauna of Chilean Patagonia.
Since the 1980s, they have worked on different wildlife projects with Iowa State University, University of Connecticut, private companies, and environmental and governmental organizations.
Most recently, they headed a study of the endangered húemul deer.
