Our intense desire to explore new places, meet new people and get away from it all has given rise to an industry that’s guzzling water, clearing land and devouring resources faster than they can be replenished. But with your help, we can change this and find a better way forward. If you care about protecting the world’s great destinations — beaches, reefs, forests, historic and cultural treasures — and all of the people whose lives and livelihoods depend on them, we need your support.

When handled properly, tourism growth presents a tremendous opportunity for creating positive impact within a destination. To address the growing needs and opportunities in the Torres del Paine region, Sustainable Travel International partnered with the Fink Family Foundation to develop and manage the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund.
With a goal of enhancing both the visitor experience and long-term health of Torres del Paine National Park and its surrounding communities, the Legacy Fund serves as a mechanism for travelers and tourism businesses to give back to the destination. One hundred percent of contributions to the Legacy Fund directly support local community development and conservation projects including Lenga tree reforestation, trail restoration on the iconic W circuit, and the first municipal recycling program in Puerto Natales. The Legacy Fund partners with local NGO, business, and government stakeholders to implement these projects and is working towards a long term goal of empowering members of the local community to carry out their own projects.
