Help Save Patagonia’s Wild Rivers

Oppose Endesa’s plans to dam rivers of Patagonia

Please take action to prevent the damming of the free-flowing Baker and Pascua rivers. The dams would harm protected areas, and areas which are priorities for conservation. They threaten beautiful glacial lakes, and plant and animal species which appear nowhere else on Earth. The dams threaten local plans to protect the region as a "Life Reserve," and to promote its rapidly expanding ecotourism industry.

Chile has the potential to meet most of its energy needs through improved efficiency and geothermal and wind generation.

Send a message to Chile’s recently-elected President Michelle Bachelet voicing your opposition to the proposed dams and your support for cleaner and more sustainable energy alternatives.
