Through rigorous inquiry and knowledge sharing, we inform and engage public-spirited citizens and organizations, linking diverse interests to pursue common cause.
We are a dedicated team of researchers, communicators, advocates, subject matter experts, and professionals working on today’s big challenges and we know we are more effective and creative collectively than we are individually.

The Environmental Portfolio at The Pew Charitable Trusts
For more than twenty-five years, Pew has been a major force in educating the public and policy makers about the causes, consequences, and solutions to some of the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
Our environment work spans all seven continents with nearly 200 professionals working full-time at the local, national, and international levels to reduce the scope and severity of global environmental problems, such as the erosion of large natural ecosystems that contain a great part of the world’s remaining biodiversity, and the destruction of the marine environment.
Pew has worked in the United States and Canada since 1990 to protect vast stretches of wilderness and more recently expanded our land conservation efforts to Australia’s Outback and Chilean Patagonia.
Preserving these places offers an opportunity to conserve wildlife habitat, shorelines and pristine landscapes for current and future generations.
Our work relies on the sciences of conservation, biology, and economy to advocate for sound solutions to the loss of biodiversity.
In the sea, reforms to how our oceans are managed are essential to address overfishing, pollution, and loss of habitat. Pew began its oceans program in the United States, focusing on ending overfishing and protecting fragile marine habitat.
Since 2005, Pew’s ocean conservation program has expanded around the world and has played a significant role in reforming marine fisheries management in the European Union and on the high seas, and creating marine reserves around the world.
Our work is grounded in the best available science and our goals include reversing the decline of ocean life ranging from sharks and tunas to penguins and whales, and the habitat and conditions on which they depend.
Chile’s Patagonia is one of the last remaining intact wilderness areas of the world, yet today it is both under-recognized and under-
protected. Pew and its partners are working to change that by promoting this region’s unique value in the world and developing and implementing policies to secure the long-
term protection of this remarkable landscape.
Chilean Patagonia is on the west coast of the southern cone of South America, where the continent tapers toward the Antarctic Ocean.
While many of Chile’s natural lands all have important ecological values, Patagonia is special because of its high degree of intactness, endemism and exceptional land and sea interconnectedness.
Approximately 80 percent of this area remains unspoiled, therefore making it similar in ecological condition to Australia’s Outback and Canada’s Boreal, other places where Pew works.
Although it is approximately one-fifth the size of the continental-scale Boreal in Canada and Outback, Chile’s Patagonia stretches over several hundred miles of important wilderness that features unique geography, oceanography and ecological productivity, including a lush temperate rainforest, glacier-
carved valleys, windy grasslands, inland shorelines, and countless fjords and islands.
In partnership with a robust network of non-governmental organizations in Chile, Pew will work to improve and enhance the protection of this landscape through the country’s park and reserve system, while also promoting public-
private partnerships for new conservation efforts.
The officer, Chilean Patagonia project assists in leading the implementation of a campaign to establish permanent and durable policies to protect Chile’s Patagonia ecosystem.
This will include work in the regions of Los Lagos, Aysén, Magallanes, and possibly other geographical locations in Chile.
The campaign works closely with other partner organizations, including a working group of Chilean environmental organizations, to mobilize support and technical expertise for strong and durable conservation of the Patagonia region.
This position is based in Pew’s Santiago, Chile office and will report to the project director of the Chilean Patagonia initiative.
