Pucon Ultra / Trail Running

The Chilean trail running scene is exploding with races, from the high altitude desert of the Atacama, to the frigid depths of wildest Patagonia. In the Spring issue of Trail Running magazine, I told the story of the sparkling new Pucon Trail race with my photos from the flanks of Volcan Villarrica.

Salmon Farming in Patagonia / Geographical

This May 2018 I got a tip-off that a Chilean salmon farming company was planning a controversial 72,000tonne processing plant at the heart of the Patagonian fiords in Puerto Natales. 

The deep dive research for Geographical magazine is a story of fishy politics, questionable farming practices and the changing geography of the salmon farming industry as they move into the near-pristine seas of the southernmost waters of the planet.

I would like to express my thanks for the interviews, comment and photography provided by the Citizen Education Council of Ultima EsperanzaGreenpeace Chile, National Geographic Pristine Seas scientist Alex Muñoz and Australis Seafoods.

The Greenpeace sign reads ‘This is what the salmon industry is hiding’ referring to the football-field sized space each concession occupies with depth of cages equivalent to a five-storey building. (Photo: Sergio Salazar/Greenpeace). Cover photo: Greenpeace Andino.
