Pew’s Chilean Patagonia team, Chile’s national forest service and protected areas agency (CONAF), and the Fundación Áreas Protegidas arranged to exhibit this scene and 15 others for a show in Chile’s National Congress to let the pictures tell the story.

Most are wearing jackets and standing on a wooden platform lined with sturdy wood railings, while some kneel or squat in front. At the center of the group, one person sits in a single-wheeled wheelchair designed to navigate accessible trails like this one.
