At Tierra Hotels sustainability is a strong factor in all decision making. For this reason Tierra Hotels are supporting Reforest Patagonia, an unprecedented citizen campaign that aims to plant 1,000,000 trees in Chilean Patagonia. Tierra Patagonia has made a substantial donation to help in the efforts to reforest Patagonia on behalf of their guests.
This public-private initiative nonprofit project is being supported by Conaf (Chilean forest administration), Chile´s Tourism Board the Subsecretaría de Turismo, Patagonia Sur, a private company which is responsible for logistics and coordination of reforestation crews as well as Fundación Imagen de Chile, a foundation responsible for promoting Chile´s image.
The main objective of this campaign is for citizens worldwide to contribute 1,000,000 native trees (lengas, ñirres and coigües) to be planted in four national parks and reserves in Chilean Patagonia.
