More and more often, countless people every day leave the vortex of the cities to appreciate and enjoy nature in all its splendor. On every mountain and valley, and every river and lake, it’s common today to find a growing number of people who practice outdoor sports, perhaps their way of understanding a little more this “pale blue dot,” as the astronomer Carl Sagan once called the planet we inhabit.

Issue 17 - In the Footsteps of the Puma

E-mail Print

The puma is the apex predator - the king - of Patagonian wilderness. Still, overgrazing and hunting nearly wiped out this majestic feline from most of its native habitat across the region. Now, over the past three decades, like the mountain lions of North America, this once threatened species is making a comeback. Jim Williams, author of a new book on pumas and wildlife program manager for Montana, writes about Conservación Patagonica and their work researching and conserving pumas in Patagonia National Park in Chile and in an interview with Patagon Journal also discusses lessons learnt and the challenges ahead in the effort to protect this species.

By Patrick Nixon

The year 2017 was the 40th anniversary of Bruce Chatwin’s seminal travel book In Patagonia. The book came about when Chatwin, while in the United States on assignment for the Sunday Times of London, on the spur of the moment decided to travel to Patagonia to pursue a long-held dream to write about the region. The result was an epic book about his encounters with locals in both Chile and Argentina that to this day remains the must-read book for travelers to this part of the world.
