Mission:
Conservation VIP grew out of the need to help park rangers protect the environment and cultural resources within national parks around the world. Conservation VIP is composed entirely of volunteers collaborating with park rangers to accomplish high priority projects, such as restoration of natural areas, repair of trails, removal of exotic species, planting trees, and assisting archaeologists. Our current focus is the Machu Picchu Sanctuary in Peru and Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. For example, UNESCO is considering placing Machu Picchu Sanctuary on its list of endangered World Heritage Sites due to increased visitation and rapid development of communities within the sanctuary. Conservation VIP is collaborating with the Peruvian Institute of Culture, the Institute of Natural Resources, local communities, business and volunteers to directly respond to these threats through volunteer efforts, training, encouraging collaboration and donation of tools and supplies.
