In these surroundings, the dwellers of the quiet community of Caulín carry out their agricultural and fishing activities making good use of the natural resources and establishing a direct relationship with their environment. Therefore, this place was declared a Bird Sanctuary, a designation celebrated with a festival every January.
In turn, the rescue of cultural traditions has enabled the town of Caulín to show visitors the handicrafts representing the Huiliche culture, as well as regional festivals such as “la mariscada” (a seafood festival). This event is celebrated when the sea recedes almost one kilometer and the beach is sown with seafood the villagers pick up to produce their typical dishes, such as curanto.
Thus, with its customs and sceneries, Caulín is a clear example of the harmonious co-existence amongst the locals, the bird fauna and the rest of the autochnthonous animals.
