I had the great honor of being invited to have a private audience with His Holiness Pope Francis this week at the Vatican in Rome. We spoke of the conservation of lands and seas and of the necessity to insure that neighboring communities find direct benefits from protecting or restoring ecosystems to their full expression. I asked him for his thoughts on rethinking Peace, the necessity to include Peace between the human and non-human world as well. In the absence of a healthy fully-functioning ecosystem there can be no high quality and dignified human communities for all people. I congratulated him on the Encyclical he wrote in 2015, he reminded me that it was written as a social document, I said I was certain that it was, nevertheless his thoughts on the importance of protecting biodiversity and other shared values had great impact on conservationists around the world. I spoke for all of our team members when I expressed our gratitude for his interest in our work in conservation, Rewilding and activism in Chile and Argentina. I won’t forget this moment in my life. On my birthday. KMT #tompkinsconservation #conservationlandtrust

Good news! This week at Iberá Park in Argentina, CLT - The Conservation Land Trust - team found 40 Saffron-cowled blackbirds, a species that's in critical danger of extinction in the country. This species is recovering thanks to conservation efforts. We're celebrating this great news and hope that more and more Saffron-cowled blackbirds will fill the skies of Iberá Park. // ¡Buenas noticias! Esta semana en Parque Iberá, Argentina, el equipo de CLT - The Conservation Land Trust - encontró 40 tordos amarillos, especie declarada en peligro crítico de extinción en ese país. Esta especie se recupera y se mantiene gracias a los esfuerzos de conservación. Celebramos esta gran noticia y esperamos que cada vez más tordos amarillos acompañen los cielos del Parque Iberá.

Ayer la Fundación Tompkins y Michelle Bachelet, firmaron un decreto por el cual se crean 4.5 millones de hectáreas de Parques Nacionales. La Fundación donó sus parques Pumalín y Patagonia. Me hace muy feliz que @maseraluli pueda formar parte de este equipo maravilloso que tan bien le hace al planeta!!

Getting back on the Instagram horse after several months busy shooting and not posting! Most recently, I spent a month working in northern Argentina, documenting land conservation, re-wilding projects of the Conservation Land Trust Argentina (#CLTA) in the Esteros del #Iberá, a vast #wetland in Corrientes Province. I also photographed the rich culture of the #Correntinos and of the people who live within the Esteros, many of whom work with CLTA. Over the next couple weeks, I will post a series of photos and video clips of the work of CLTA and the vibrant #gaucho heritage of Corrientes. In this photo, Camila Macarena, a volunteer for CLTA who is working to be a park ranger, returns at #sunset on #horseback after tracking and feeding a giant anteater that was rescued, rehabilitated and recently returned to the #wild. The Iberá Project of CLTA is one of the most ambitious species re-introduction initiatives in the world, and the largest in South America – the team is bringing back giant anteater, pampas deer, tapirs, peccaries, green-winged macaws and jaguars to the Iberá ecosystem.

@Regranned from @leonardodicapriofdn - #Repost @tompkins_conservation Iberá Park welcomes more than 40 animals from Mendoza Ecopark. Sebastián Di Martino, Coordinator of the CLT Rewilding Program, Argentina, shared: "We are taking a step forward in the collaboration between institutions and provinces to restore the ecology of Iberá and northern Argentina. Today, Mendoza Ecopark, consistent with their declared intention to give their animals a better quality of life, gave them the opportunity to live freely in nature and reinforce populations that had previously been extinct. What seemed impossible 10 years ago –provinces and institutions collaborating to restore a complete ecosystem in Argentina– is a reality today, and this large movement of fauna is proof of it.

Sept 12th, Renihue. Snowing up above, v cold down on the fjord, vegetable beds soaked and bare. Blueberry bushes sound asleep. What deep impact on all of us who found ourselves working in roadless areas - where weather is king, determining whether we can fly, or take a boat up the fjord or so rough that you're simply forced to stay put. Of the many reasons I'm grateful for this life is my learned ability to read weather. Taking hunches on the trends - to go for it or hold tight. I think it changes our relationship to nature so profoundly that, once experienced, there's no going back.

The commute between Renihue and Pillan Farms and Pumalin Park - the beauty of working in a roadless area, you have two options; this one or a Cessna or the Husky. From Alaska to the tip of South America there are only two places where the Pan American Highway doesn't go through; the Darian Gap and right here. It has led us to many unforgettable moments just getting to work for nearly twenty five years!

By this time next winter Baby Tapir Fever should subside somewhat, but in the meantime, this from one of the team members this week - just keeping an eye on them. First tapir born in Ibera wetlands in over fifty years, returning to their rightful place! Mother and son doing very well and covering kilometers every day even though little Arandu is only seven weeks old. A new born giant anteater yesterday in the San Alonso group so we're all smiling on days like this.

Six weeks old and beginning to nibble on a few grasses here and there. I think of them as part of the new foundation of Rewilding an entire watershed stripped of it full complement of biodiversity over many decades. When we see little Arandu our hopes of a teeming and diverse landscape here a hundred years from now comes out.

Patagonia Park, Aysen,Chile. One of our two parks (Pumalin Park being the other one) we are donating this year to the Chilean government, just over one million acres between the two of them. The government is, at the same time committing sufficient state land that when joined together the agreement creates five new national parks and expands three existing national parks for a total of just over ten million acres. We're working in overdrive to get this done. President Bachelet and her government are really raising the bar for what is possible at a governmental level.
