The Chacabuco River, with the Aviles Valley behind. One of the trails Conservacion Patagonica is creating will run up this spectacular 30km long valley. Image courtesy of Conservacion Patagonica.

FOR THOSE INTERESTED in working directly towards large-scale conservation, consider spending time in Chilean Patagonia, at the future Patagonia National Park.

Convervacion Patagonica, the org in charge of this project, has just released this vid that shows exactly what’s going on down there. I visited in late 2011 and can say firsthand that this is one of the most beautiful and pristine regions on the planet, and a super cool community of people. For more information, visit Conservacion Patagonica.
