Google doodle honors Chile’s National Day

On this date in 1810, Chile’s Primera Junta Nacional de Gobierno (First National Assembly) made the initial move toward autonomy, starting the beginning of the Chilean development to becoming a sovereign nation.

The present Doodle honors Chile’s National Day or Fiestas Patrias with a portrayal of the South American country’s true animal—the huemul deer.

Native toward the southern Andean regions of Chile and Argentina, the huemul (otherwise called the South Andean deer) is the rarest mammal found inside the Chilean boundaries.

A locating of one of these elusive creatures in nature is an uncommon and special occurrence, yet it can generally be seen on the Chilean Coat of Arms close by its kindred mountain dweller, the Andean condor.

Albeit the wild huemul deer population was estimated to be under 1,500 of every 2019, conservationists in a protected region of the Valdivian Rainforest released the main pair of huemul deer bred in imprisonment that very year—meaning a basic advance for expanding the quantities of this beloved species in its natural habitat.

Happy National Day, Chile!
