Chile | Reputed treasure in Juan Fernandez NP lures hunters using backhoes, other destructive means

A two-and-a-half hour flight separates the Chilean capital of Santiago and the Archipiélago de Juan Fernández National Park. The archipelago is rich in marine and terrestrial biodiversity and comprises three islands: Santa Clara, Alejandro Selkirk, and Robinson Crusoe, which is home to San Juan Bautista, the islands’ only permanently inhabited settlement.

According to legend, a treasure lies in the sea around the island.
