Editors Note: The following is from Issue 15.
 
The movement to protect nature on private lands in Chile is now widespread and growing. Hundreds of private conservation projects of all kinds are on the march. This includes not just the monumental parks agreement between Tompkins Conservation and the Chilean government, but emblematic areas like the Valdivian Coastal Reserve, Juncal Andino Park, Karukinka Park, and Huilo Huilo. The maturation of that land conservation movement builds in large part on the work of conservationist and environmental educator, Elisa Corcuera, who died on July 14 at age forty-four.

Throughout Earth’s history, rivers have been essential for the survival of both humans and other species. Around these rivers, some of the oldest civilizations rose and fell. Rivers have represented life, death, obstacles, borders, transportation routes and even gods. Their very existence made them subjects of veneration and respect.

In Chile, we have the good fortune to live under the peaks of the longest mountain range on the planet. The Andean range is best known for its majesty and for the tourist attractions it generates, with its ski resorts and beautiful natural landscapes. But these are only of secondary importance, for the Andes conceal a more profound and vital beauty, which those of us who love these mountains have the responsibility to protect and bring to light.

Small flies, big challenges

By Reinaldo Ovando
 
Editors Note: The following is from Issue 14.
 
Southern Chile and Argentina offer a variety of ecosystems and natural landscapes that can really take your breath away, the large majority of them with little human intervention, and some almost completely pristine, make Patagonia an ideal international destination for fly fishermen. Even more so if you add to this the possibility of fishing true "trophies" that will test even the most experienced fisherman, either by the species that it is possible to find or by the geographical and climatic conditions in the extreme south of South America.
