That article 41 of the National Constitution guarantees to all inhabitants the right to a healthy, balanced, human-friendly environment and to ensure that productive activities meet the needs present without compromising those of future generations; consistent with article 73 of the Constitution of the Province of Santa Cruz.

That these constitutional norms impose on their respective authorities the obligation to protect that right, as well as to verify the rational use of natural resources and the preservation of both natural and cultural heritage and biodiversity.

That articles 124 of the National Constitution and 52 of the Provincial Constitution recognize the original domain of the Province of Santa Cruz of the natural resources existing within the provincial territory.

That under these premises the Province of Santa Cruz and the Argentine Nation consider of great interest the creation of an inter-jurisdictional space for the management of the natural resources existing in the territorial sea.

That the creation of the Marine Interjurisdictional Park should be carried out under legal guidelines, of coordinated administration and management between both jurisdictions attentive to the wealth and environmental diversity presented by the coastal/marítimo provincial environment and the importance of the area for the development of the provincial tourist activity.

That each of the jurisdictions involved in the signature of the present, in full exercise of its constitutional powers, have developed valid and effective conservation schemes.
