Places We Protect


640x250 Park Guard Valdivian Coastal Reserve

Chile's native Mediterranean vegetation survives only in increasingly isolated fragments.

From the coasts of the Pacific Ocean to the Mediterranean habitats in central Chile, The Nature Conservancy is working to ensure our lands and waters are protected for future generations.

For more than a decade, The Nature Conservancy works with local communities, government agencies, private corporations and members like you to conserve and restore the extraordinary and diverse natural lands of Chile – oceans and coasts, temperate forests and Mediterranean areas- in which people and wildlife depend on.
