The world's southernmost deer, the huemul is endemic to Andean Patagonia and its population has been reduced to roughly 1,500 individuals in total, representing only 1% of the species' historic numbers. The 27-year conservation efforts of Tompkins Conservation Chile (TC Chile) to rewild the Chilean Patagonia have been crucial to this species' survival. Through National Park's creation, ecological restoration, and promoting a culture of conservation within local communities in the Route of Parks of Chilean Patagonia, TC Chile is working to establish the National Huemul Corridor to ensure this species' protection and prosperity.
