Chile | Two large new NPs formally dedicated, capping successful campaign led by private group

Two national parks have been formally dedicated in Chile, marking a pledge made early last year to create five new national parks in the country while expanding the boundaries of three others.


On Monday, Chilean President Michelle Bachelet and Kristine McDivitt Tompkins, president and CEO of Tompkins Conservation, signed the decrees creating Pumalín National Park and Patagonia National Park. The one million acres and world-class infrastructure they contain have been billed as the largest donation of land from a private entity to a country.
