The dark followed by the the light
The uniqueness and awe delivered by Patagonia also brought me sadness as I witnessed humanity and climate change continuing to impede on nature's last remaining strongholds.
It is intended our young bloggers and filmmakers will cover the subjects in greater detail from their perspective, but here are a few prompts and links to articles about the challenges. We will share their work through our Space2Evolve channels and help them develop their resources over time.
Forest Fires - I missed these by a month.
Invasive Species - I struggled here with the impact of farming (deforestation) vs beaver-led deforestation… who is really doing the most damage
The Full Monty article
Jobs vs Nature .... is the answer tourism?
To end this episode on a more positive note, the sadness I felt was in part tempered by the incredible work undertaken by Tompkins Conservation (Rewilding Chile, Rewilding Argentina) in partnership with governmental organisations of Argentina Parques Nacional & CONAF. In short, this organisation has bought and started to re-wilded huge areas of Patagonia over the last 30 years. In a deal with the Chilean and Argentine Governments’ conservation organisations, they multiplied the areas by 10 and handed them all back to the respective countries! Watch the film HERE.
Here are a few shots from the various national parks and the little critters that make it so very special..
