Futaleufu River Corridor
Los Lagos Region, Chilean Patagonia
Tierra Austral is engaged in productive discussions with several landowners in a river corridor. We are interested in implementing DRC agreements protecting the riverbank landscapes for several reasons, including the ecological importance of the properties, their appropriateness as DRC demonstration projects, and because of the significance of this effort as a potential community initiative and a shared vision for the conservation of this extraordinary place. In addition, the project looks to protect properties from non-sustainable land uses (such as dams, intensive forestry and mining within others). During the next year, we will move forward with establishing the DRC agreement to protect at least three properties.
