After years of hard work, Save The Waves, Fundación Punta de Lobos and Patagonia have announced that they have raised all of the money necessary to purchase the first property at Punta de Lobos, protecting it forever.
”In 2015, Save The Waves and Patagonia launched the “Lobos Por Siempre” campaign, with the goal to raise enough money to purchase the 4.5 acre Mirador Property. The most iconic property, the Mirador Property at the very tip of Punta de Lobos was purchased by Chilean Philanthropist Nico Davis and held with an agreement to sell only to the Foundation when the money had been raised. With the help of Patagonia, the Marisla Foundation, Packard Foundation, Waitt Foundation and over 900 small donors, we all were able to raise over $750,000.
Yesterday, The property has been transferred and officially dedicated as a World Surfing Reserve in an intimate ceremony at Punta de Lobos.
The Fundación is now moving toward creating a Think Tank and advancing conservation through the Chilean coastline and beyond.
