Collaborating with public and private partners, we have helped to create 7 national parks, and expand 3 others, protecting 11.5 million acres and propelling the vision of the Route of Parks of Chilean Patagonia. This 1,700-mile journey crosses one third of Chile and it’s a hotspot for endemism and biodiversity. Every acre we protect sequesters carbon and contributes towards mitigating the climate crisis.
As we face the greatest global biodiversity crisis in our human history, the need for large- scale ecological recovery has become more urgent than ever. The main goal of our Rewilding Program at Southern Chile is to increase the number, range and resiliency of threatened species, and reestablish their natural corridors. Since 2005 our team has worked to monitor and protect iconic species in Chilean Patagonia including the endangered huemul, puma, Darwin’s rhea, Andean cóndor, vizcacha, Geoffroy’s cat, and pampas cat.
Conservation is most successful when individuals and communities are engaged and empowered. We build partnerships with communities, organizations, and governments and work to foster an economic vitality that is inextricably linked to a healthy natural world. For over 25 years our team has proudly defended nature and seeks to spark activism in others.
