There is an existing agreement that allows the previous owner to hold a limited amount of animals on the Eastern half of the Jeinimeni property. This agreement expires in December of 2018.
Patagonia Sur’s mission is to uphold the wilderness and multiple ecosystems that abound within the property. There are numerous bird populations that live within the confines of Jeinimeni’s borders; Guanacos, Nandues, Black-necked swans, Andean Condors, and Flamingos. Jeinimeni encompasses multiple ecosystems within its borders, each with a specific population of plant life and animals. Each of these important systems are unique to the area and some of the species are not seen any other place of the world.
In order to help with these conservation goals, Patagonia Sur has created a unique opportunity to preserve the land that you purchase in Chile. After their inception, Patagonia Sur formed a non-governmental organization known as Fundacion de Conservacion Tierra Austral. This NGO acts as a land trust to help guide future of owners of Jeinimeni if they decide they would like to create a “Servidumbre Voluntaria” (a Chilean version of a conservation easement) on the property.
Patagonia National Park
In 2004, Estancia Valle Chacabuco was acquired by Conservacion Patagonica and Kris and Doug Tompkins on the pretense that it would be the beginning of the Patagonia Park. Lago Jeinimeni National Reserve, which adjoins Jeinimeni, and Tamango National Reserve will be donated by Chilean government at the time of Patagonia Park’s formal induction. Forming a 640,000 acre park accessible to the public, this expansive protected land crosses over into Argentina from Chile and allows for unobtrusive bi-national entry. The large expanse affords visitors access to rich riparian forests, wetlands, rivers and grasslands, and is home to numerous flora and fauna not seen in any other part of the world.
