“Geute Conservación Sur” (GEUTE) is a Chilean environmental NGO founded in August 2015, located in Puerto Varas, X Region, Chile.

Geute was created to contribute to the preservation of biodiversity, ecosystems, and landscapes of breathtaking beauty and natural wealth, and to carry out ecological restoration work using the interconnected knowledge of different disciplines that contribute to a proper understanding of the territory and its people.

Unfortunately, our work will never achieve its highest goals while investment projects that cause enormous damage, irreversibly impacting territories with high conservation value, are planned and supported. This is why we have assumed the legal defense of several threatened ecosystems. Put another way, we feel an obligation to address the threats arising today, firmly defend what we still have, while simultaneously working in conservation and ecological restoration, as well as acting as innovative and proactive collaborators in the support of the State, private stakeholders and legislators in the development of coherent and environmentally friendly socio-economic models.

In order to achieve its goals, the Foundation works extensively in the construction of networks involving multiple actors, cementing a public profile with citizen support, promoting and developing strategies based on environmental ethics and cooperation.
