About Fundación Patagonia Natural

Fundación Patagonia Natural is an Argentinian non-profit organization that works for a better quality of life for the people of Patagonia through the protection of nature and the sustainable use of natural resources. They manage two refuges: Punta Flecha, located 17 km from Puerto Madryn in El Doradillo Municipal Protected Area, a Southern right whale hotspot, and La Esperanza, located 75 km north of Puerto Madryn and within the buffer zone of the Peninsula Valdés Protected Natural Area, a Natural Heritage of Humanity UNESCO site.

Their Challenges

25% of Argentina's wild animal species are considered at risk of extinction, yet deforestation and agriculture continue to expand, pushing wildlife further towards the edge.  Argentina has also been experiencing more severe and frequent flood and droughts.  Argentina's formal system of Protected Natural Areas currently only covers less than 5% of the country's surface.  Thus, buffer zones constitute a great opportunity to improve this ratio.  Fundación Patagonia Natural manages these lands with the aim of conserving a representative area of ​​the Patagonian Coastal Steppe.

Their Approach

Fundación Patagonia Natural manages many conservation projects, including increasing renewable energy accessibility, research on Argentina's ecosystems and biodiversity, increasing opportunities for environmental education for both students and teachers, and direct conservation initiatives. 

Why They Need Your Help
