Description: This article discusses ten dimensions of a biocultural conservation approach at the austral tip of the Americas. In the context of the conference "Building Sustainable Communities in Mexico & U.S.A." organized by the Center for US/Mexico Alliance for Community Renewal, UNT in January 2003, the authors were invited to present a view on sustainability and conservation based on their experience at the southern extreme of the Americas: the Region of Cape Horn, Chile. First, the authors introduce the regional scenario of biological and cultural conservation, and then the authors provide an overview of their approach by defining ten criteria that aim to achieve social well-being and biocultural conservation at the austral tip of the continent.
