Much is said about the participation of communities in conservation projects. We believe that in order to make a real contribution to the socio-economic development of local communities, the link must be concrete in different areas of action. Our conservation team is nourished and supported by the knowledge of people in the region with extensive experience in the field. This knowledge has direct consequences on our work in wildlife monitoring and planning activities in the field.
At the same time, it is very important to generate alliances with local actors in order to make a common force towards coexistence between human activities. Specifically, our work includes: provide local employment, use of traditional knowledge, make livestock development compatible with conservation, generate awareness among inhabitants of neighbouring communities, generate educational opportunities and promote collaborative work among the actors of the Torres del Paine Biosphere Reserve.
