After more than a century of overgrazing, Patagonia's sheep ranchers are banding together to revive the region's battered grasslands. Travel to the southern tip of South America with photographer Nick Hall in our series of behind-the-scenes videos about the Conservancy's conservation work in Patagonia: Witness the native species — like penguins and guanacos — that make their homes on the edge of the wild; watch an ornery sheep being sheared; navigate a remote landscape without street signs; explore jaw-dropping scenery from mountains to plains; and meet the ranchers who are pioneering sustainable wool in one of the most remote places on Earth.

Start your trek by watching the videos above then read the full story in Nature Conservancy magazine and in our digital edition app for iPad.
