Postcard From Patagonia: Creating a national park

Located in the southern tip of Chile, Patagonia National Park is more than half-a-million acres of mountains and valleys, glaciers and grasslands, winding rivers and wild guanacos – and it is part of the largest private land donation in history. Conor Knighton trekked the wilds of the park with Kristine Tompkins, former CEO of the clothing company Patagonia, whose non-profit, Tompkins Conservation, handed over this park to the Chilean government to preserve its wild-ness for generations to come. It’s a dream that has been two-and-a-half decades in the making, and the culmination of a remarkable love story. Source
