Kristine Tompkins donates 93,492 hectares of land to create the southernmost national park

Great news for Chile, South America, and the world! The Chilean President Gabriel Boric has accepted a donation of land from Kristine Tompkins, the widow of American philanthropist Douglas Tompkins and founder of Rewilding Chile. The donation consists of 93,492 hectares of land in the southern region of Punta Arenas and will be used to create a national park.

The area is home to the Kaweskar indigenous communities and includes Cabo Froward, the southernmost point of the American continent, which is home to endangered species such as the huemul and Magellanic penguin. The donation is part of Kristine Tompkins' ongoing efforts to protect and conserve natural areas in Chile. In response, President Boric thanked her and described the news as "very good" for Chile and the world.


The Tompkins Conservation foundation, founded by Kristine and Douglas Tompkins, is a non-profit organization that works to protect and conserve land and wildlife in Chile and Argentina. The foundation acquires land for conservation purposes, creates and manages protected areas, and supports scientific research, environmental education, and sustainable economic development.
