Protect Patagonia Now

Monday, June 4, 2012

Chilean officials granted environmental approval for the HidroAysén project in May 2011, which would build five mega-dams on two of Patagonia’s wildest rivers. Yet the project is far from a done deal.

President Piñera can still renounce HidroAysén and big dam development, and instead show Chile as a world leader in creating a truly sustainable future based on democratic participation, respect for human rights, energy efficiency and non-conventional renewables like solar, wind and geothermal power.

Take action – send a letter to President Piñera in solidarity with the 72% of Chileans who are against damming Patagonia.
