Did you hear? With the largest land donation ever, Chile expands its national park network by an area three times the size of Yosemite and Yellowstone National Parks combined. - @jimmy_chin was there and here's what he had to say about it: (Repost @jimmy_chin) ・・・ Kris Tompkins addressing President Bachelet, Chilean senators, and many of the people who have worked over the last 25 years building the park systems that will become part of the Chilean National Park system. With 1.1m acres committed from the @tompkins_conservation group and another 10m acres from the Chilean government, this new protected land is considered the largest private conservation land handover in history. Given what is happening to our public lands in the US, this moment for Chile, and example of conservation for the rest of the world, is a breath of fresh air. Literally.
