Chile’s biodiversity is characterized by its high endemism, home to a vast array of unique species; a territory surrounded by desert, mountains, and sea. As is the case globally, this biodiversity is threatened by human activity—anthropic pressures—from the destruction of habitats to climate change.
We want to contribute to the conservation and protection of natural life through the creation and support of innovative research projects. We are interested in generating action through the various exchanges and thus fresh outlooks gained from multidisciplinary collaboration.
For the last ten years we have worked in our private protected area, Bosque Pehuén, to accumulate knowledge on temperate rainforests, an environment that is considered a relevant site of Biodiversity worldwide. The insights gained from our in-depth study of Bosque Pehuén and its surroundings can serve to guide others in sustainable and entirely replicable models of conservation of natural and cultural heritage.
Our Foundation also prioritizes the care for and protection of wetlands, environments characterized by their fragility, their contribution to climate regulation on a global level, and their wide variety of natural life. Together with a large network of institutions, we support the study, care, and conservation of forests, coastal edges, seas and oceans, rivers and glaciers.
