Conservation targets

The priority of the Kreen Foundation is ensuring that ecosystem-based functions remain in their pristine conditions, implementing measures to promote protection, while also conserving the geomorphic features that sustain the area’s biodiversity. Appreciating and respecting the local history, traditions, and cultures is also central to improving the wellbeing of the communities associated with the sanctuary, thus assuring the conservation of both ecological and sociocultural values.

Conservation targets for protected areas may include: genes, species, populations, vegetation formations, ecosystems, ecosystem services, nesting and reproduction sites, habitats, relict forests, scenic beauty, archeological or anthropological finds, geological features and formations, bodies of water, as well as fragile or degraded soils.

In the case of the Meullín-Puye Nature Sanctuary, an area shaped by glaciation and the presence of the Liquiñe-Ofqui geological fault, the conservation targets are the following:

  • Puye and other native fish
  • Southern river otter
  • Darwin’s frog and other native amphibians
  • Humid temperate rainforest
  • Wetlands and the water system
  • Local history and heritage
  • Geological formations
  • Ecosystem services
