Peninsula Mitre

A Forgotten Land


The Gauchos del Mar brothers perform an unprecedented expedition by foot with 35kgs+ on their backs during 53 days on the easternmost tip of Tierra del Fuego Province, a pristine area where no one lives. The brothers have the goal of surfing a world-class wave never ridden before at the Cape San Diego Lighthouse, the most easterly point.   To get there they overcome heavy terrains, scarcity of food and harsh climate. With no communication whatsoever they document the region and decide to share their message of environmentalism, avoiding consumerism and living simply in order to protect Península Mitre forever!

Sign the petition

We went in search for waves and found a cause: Protect Peninsula Mitre Forever.

Nowadays there are almost no pristine places on Earth.
Peninsula Mitre is an area of 790.000 acres in the easternmost tip of Tierra del Fuego Province in Argentina.
It is threatened by a possible exploitation for its natural resources, including: peatlands, rivers, mountains, native forests, minerals, and its extended-rich coastline with endemic Flora and Fauna.
Before it is too late, lets sign the petition to ask the Local City Hall members and the Governor of Tierra del Fuego Province in Argentina to make possible the Law Project to Conserve Peninsula Mitre, one of the last wild places in the American Continent.
The Civil Association Conservation of Peninsula Mitre (ACCPM) is fighting for the conservation of the area, so on our behalf we decided to contribute
because since 2004 the project was presented at the Local City Hall and in 2013 as well; but with no news nor success till the moment.
