Son muy vulnerables a las actividades mineras y petroleras, que implican la explotacion de canteras y grandes movimientos de tierra. Tambien son vulnerables al aumento de la poblacion y de las actividades economicas, que requieren la continua apertura de caminos y la urbanizacion de tierras publicas. -InglishThe native fuegian people did't leave stone buildings or monuments or paintingson rock, and the physical remains of their cultures are usually hidden from sight,buried just below the vegetation. They are very vulnerable to mining and oil-related activities, which require the use of quarries and widespread soil removal. They are also vulnerable to the rise in population and economic activities, which require the continuous opening of roads and the urbanization of public lands.If we fuegians are to love our land, and look after it, we believe it is important to know the history of our ancestors. That is why we decided to install a museum, using dioramas to show how life was long ago, in the times of the Yamana,the Shelk'nam, and the first european colonizers.Ushuaia is a tourism center, which allows us to keep the museum open without government aid or subsidies, by charging an entrance fee to our visitors.Throughout the year we receive the visit of schools, without charge. The museum organizes annual cultural events, and takes part in events organized by others.-EspanolSi los fueguinos hemos de amar a nuestra tierra, y cuidarla, creemos importanteconocer la historia de nuestros antecesores. Es por ello que decidimos instalarun museo con maquetas a escala, mostrando como era la vida antiguamente,en epoca de los Yamana y Shelk'nam y los primeros colonizadores europeos. Gracias a que Ushuaia es una ciudad turistica, podemos mantener al museosin recibir subsidios del gobierno, con el cobro de una entrada a los visitantes.Durante el ano recibimos visitas de colegios, sin cargo. El Museo organiza encuentros culturales que se repiten anualmente, y participa de actividades organizadas por otros. « less

At first sight, many think Bahía Encerrada to be a lake, but it is in fact, as its Spanish name confirms, a "confined bay."
