The Futaleufú Riverkeeper®,
Patagonia’s First Waterkeeper
Welcome to the official site of the Futaleufú Riverkeeper, Patagonia’s first Waterkeeper program. We are a Chilean nonprofit foundation with 501(c)3 sponsorship in the U.S.
The mission of the Futaleufú Riverkeeper is to protect the Futaleufú watershed and its communities from pollution, destructive development, and activities that will harm human health or the environment. We invite you to explore the site, learn about the threats to the watershed and our work to remedy them, and discover how you can donate today to help us in our fight to save the Fu.
We protect the Futaleufú watershed by investigating threats, developing comprehensive environmental policies, and engaging in litigation to stop the companies that would destroy it. Our actions are centered around vigilant monitoring and targeted litigation. We work with the communities through environmental education and consensus-building, advising them in their individual struggles and mobilizing them to fight against projects that will harm their health, culture, and livelihoods.
Please explore our work and consider joining our cause to help us in protecting this unique and irreplaceable part of our planet.
