Get involved

Contribute to protecting the native forest of Chiloé Island.

Join us to protect the treasures of nature in Tepuhueico Park.

Life on Earth wouldn’t be possible without forests. The primary forest of Tepuhueico Park harbors a unique biodiversity, home to species such as the pudú, the Darwin’s fox, the monito del monte, Darwin’s frog, and the kodkod. Our task is to conserve this invaluable ecosystem, restoring its balance and preserving its beauty for future generations. Your collaboration is crucial for this purpose!

Tepuhueico Conservancy

As a foundation, we seek the active conservation of the ecosystem and the biodiversity of flora, fauna, and fungi present in the territory of Parque Tepuhueico. Our commitment focuses on protecting and preserving the integrity of this valuable natural environment through comprehensive strategies that include environmental education, outreach, mitigation of environmental threats, promotion of scientific research, development of local communities, and the promotion of sustainable practices.

Through these actions, we aspire to create a conservation model that inspires and facilitates a more harmonious relationship between humans and nature. We are committed not only to the preservation of the Park but also to improving the quality of life for the communities that depend on these natural resources, ensuring a more sustainable future for all.

We encourage you to continue reading about all the initiatives we are developing through our foundation.

Adopt

Our symbolic adoptions are a way to support our conservation work in Parque Tepuhueico. Each animal symbolizes an adoption category, where the donation amount and associated rewards vary.

Your contribution will help protect the primary forest and the species that depend on it. You will be able to choose from some of the most emblematic species of the park, and depending on the category you choose, you will be providing key assistance for their protection.

Furthermore, as a token of our appreciation, you will receive a certificate and other rewards, which will depend on the amount of the donation.

Volunteering and Internships

Join our team of volunteers and interns at Parque Tepuhueico!

Managing this conservation initiative is challenging, diverse, and provides a sense of purpose while living immersed in nature. As a volunteer, you will have the opportunity to participate in various activities and collaborate in diverse roles, which will be assigned based on your specific areas of interest. These may include land use planning, natural hazard mitigation, construction, tourism, wildlife conservation, ranger duties, hospitality, birdwatching, fishing, and basic research.

We are looking for proactive individuals passionate about outdoor life, eager to learn, willing to bring new ideas, and unafraid to explore new opportunities. Additionally, we expect each volunteer to propose a personal project for any discovered improvement opportunity.
