We travel to Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia to create a story about the visible impact we leave behind on the country we live in and the countries we visit.

We talk with Emily Green, director of the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund about the importance of social and economic communities teaming together to support the sustainability of the park. Gale also shadows Chilean trail volunteers as they build a new trail in Torres del Paine.

Featuring: 

Emily Green, María Francisca Fica Muñoz, Claudia Lastra Romero, María Sánchez Ferrer, and Kathy De Riemer.
