The Nature Conservancy in Argentina recently signed a cooperation agreement with the National University of Comahue to develop joint academic, scientific and cultural projects with an emphasis on conservation of the temperate grasslands across Patagonia. The University is made up of several schools that are directly relevant to TNC’s work, including environmental sciences and health, engineering, law and social sciences, agricultural sciences, tourism and biological sciences. Through knowledge sharing and collaboration, the agreement increases potential conservation opportunities for TNC’s Patagonian Grasslands Conservation Project.
