“You get out of bed every morning and you do something.
You act, you step into the fray, and you fight for a human society
that is in balance with the natural world.”
— Kristine McDivitt Tompkins, International conservationist and former CEO of Patagonia, Inc.
THOUGHTS FROM KRIS
Continuing the Work
On Dec. 8, 2015, the world lost one of its most ambitious conservationists when Doug Tompkins died following a kayaking accident on Chile's Lago General Carrera. During 25 years of tenacious activism, Doug and Kris have helped create six new national parks and other protected areas in Chile and Argentina, in total securing more than 3.4 million acres. Since Doug's death, Kris has been working full-time to accelerate their life's work saving wildlands and wildlife.
