Conservacion Patagonica "a nonproit charity incorporated in California, was founded in 2000 by American conservationist Kristine Tompkins and a board of directors comprised of conservation and business luminaries. The former longtime CEO of the Patagonia clothing company, Kris Tompkins has lived in South America for many years, devoting her time to land and wildlife conservation projects. Under her leadership, Conservacion Patagonica has protected roughly 450,000 acres, and created one new national park in Argentina.

"Over the past two decades, she has worked with her husband, businessman and philanthropist Douglas Tompkins, to create new protected natural areas in Chile and Argentina totaling more than two million acres." [1]
