Threatened Area(s): Valle Cochamó

Conservación Cochamó (CC) is a grassroots NGO started by a group of friends who live, work and love the Cochamó Valley, Northern Chilean Patagonia. CC aims at conserving the valley’s unique environment, traditional life, culture and identity. The organization was the major responsible for the success of stopping seven hydroelectric projects from destroying the valley in 2010. Now, they are lobbying for the creation of a protected area in that region.
