Project Goal

Gather vital new knowledge about the little-known western Patagonia region

Location: Patagonia

"In order to strengthen the protection of this territory, we have to know what's there."

Eager to protect the dramatic landscapes of western Patagonia, Cristian Donoso will lead an expedition by kayak to this region, one of the most inhospitable places on earth.

Spending five months navigating open seas and fjords and pulling their kayaks across glaciers, Donoso and his team will face daunting physical and mental challenges as they gather information that will inform Chile and the world about this little-known area.
