Parque Patagonia

Aysen Region, Chile

"Balancing the constant push of human development
and the urgent needs of conservation
is the biggest issue of our time."
From Patagonia Park "Why National Parks"

 ABOUT PATAGONIA PARK - in their own words:
1,200 miles south of Santiago in South America’s southern cone stands Patagonia Park, a once-overgrazed sheep and cattle ranch that now protects an abundance of Patagonian steppe grasslands, glaciated peaks, and rebounding wildlife. Our grassland restoration project, one of the largest of its kind in the world, is the cornerstone to our re-wilding efforts. These grasslands protect many rare and threatened species, yet they are severely underrepresented in conservation projects regionally and globally. The park in progress has already welcomed thousands of visitors from around the world who have come to witness the transformation of this wild landscape. Upon donation to the Chilean government, the future Patagonia National Park will protect 640,000 acres in the heart of Patagonia.

Patagonia Park is one of the many projects Tompkins Conservation has initiated.
Here is a simple overview of the vision of Tompkins Conservation.
