POSTCARD FROM CHILE: Re-wilding Patagonia
Located in the southern tip of Chile, Patagonia National Park is more than half-a-million acres of mountains and valleys, glaciers and grasslands, winding rivers and wild guanacos – and it is part of the largest private land donation in history. Conor Knighton trekked the wilds of the park with Kristine Tompkins, former CEO of the clothing company Patagonia, whose non-profit, Tompkins Conservation, handed over this park to the Chilean government to preserve its wild-ness for generations to come.

Since 1996 inflation-adjusted pay for a public school teacher has actually fallen, and nationwide about one in five teachers has a second job to make ends meet.

But while hundreds of teachers have brought their fight for better working conditions to the political world by running for public office, others have been forced to give up the profession they love.
