Join Tompkins Conservation and help us create and defend terrestrial and marine protected areas, recover native species, and foster economic prosperity as a result of conservation. We cannot fund this work all on our own. From reintroducing jaguars in Argentina to protecting endangered huemul deer in Chile, we can do so much more, and do it so much faster, together.
"If anything can save the world,
I'd put my money on beauty."
— Doug Tompkins

Doug Tompkins (1943-2015), one of the most ambitious and successful conservationists in history, worked for a quarter century to create and expand national parks in Chile and Argentina, recover imperiled wildlife, demonstrate organic agricultural practices, promote healthy local communities, and support leading-edge activism. For those who wish to support this innovative work to protect wild places and creatures in Patagonia and beyond, we welcome your contribution to this fund.

Kris and Doug Tompkins launched their conservation initiatives as “venture philanthropists,” investing their funds, time, and energy into a diverse range of critical projects, from creating new national parks in Chilean Patagonia to reintroducing the jaguar to the Iberá wetlands. Yet we cannot fund this work on our own. Your contribution is essential to the future of our projects and conservation in Chile in Argentina.
You can help purchase wildlife habitat, advance ecological restoration, develop public-access infrastructure, support local economies, and put healthy, resilient landscapes into permanent protection. Our organization runs on minimal overhead and with lean teams. We will not spend your money on maintaining a big bureaucracy or running glossy PR campaigns.
