Go Deeper Stories: Alice’s Journey to Conservation

Alice Valenzuela arrived in Torres del Paine in 2015 with a dream: to explore one of the world's most breathtaking natural wonders. Little did she know that her journey would lead her down a path of passionate conservation.

Between 2017 and 2022, Alice worked as a guide at Explora, where her fascination for capturing the behaviors of wildlife through trail cameras ignited. During her precious free moments, she scouted natural pathways, animal latrines, and hunting grounds for various species. Her goal was to set up these covert cameras and document the elusive fauna that often remained hidden during her tourist treks.

When the Explora Conservation Reserve project kicked off in Torres del Paine, Alice was among the first to volunteer, eager to become a ranger and protector of this pristine wilderness. She poured her heart into it.


In her inaugural year living within the reserve, Alice continued her quest to capture extraordinary animal images. She achieved the seemingly impossible – heartwarming snapshots of Puma families and even one of the most elusive feline species, the Geoffroy’s cat.

Her exceptional dedication didn’t go unnoticed. In recognition of her remarkable contributions, Alice received a scholarship to study a diploma in wildlife monitoring. She’ll continue honing her skills, furthering her understanding of the park’s fauna, and contributing to the scientific knowledge of Torres del Paine’s delicate ecosystem.

Alice’s story is a testament to the power of passion and determination in conservation. She arrived with a dream, but now has become a guardian of the wild, dedicated to preserving the extraordinary territory of Torres del Paine for generations to come.
