The reforestation campaign in Patagonia is a public-private effort that aims to plant one million native trees (lengas, coihues, ñires) in four national parks and reserves of Chilean Patagonia, after a massive wildfire destroyed more than 42,000 acres of Torres del Paine National Park.
The coordinator of this campaign is the Fundación Imagen de Chile (Chilean Image Foundation), whose primary mission is to market Chile abroad, the Subsecretaría de Turismo (Undersecretary of Tourism), responsible for promoting and developing domestic tourism, CONAF which manages Chile's forest policy, and Patagonia Sur, in charge of logistics and coordination of reforestation.
Each tree costs US$4 and can be purchased at www.reforestemospatagonia.com through webpay in Chile or PayPal overseas. After the checkout, you will receive an email with a reforestation certificate and a geo-referenced link to Google Maps where is possible to see the exact location where the tree will be planted.
Despite the fire of this summer, we look forward to helping you plan your trips to Chilean Patagonia very soon. To see our exciting programmes, see:
