Rios Libres Petition Contest: Take Action + Be Entered To Win A New Osprey Pack

June 22nd, 2012

Last week we brought you a post with tons of information about Osprey partner Rios Libres, an organization that’s fighting hard against proposed damming on Patagonia’s pristine and incredibly powerful rivers. If you haven’t already gone ahead and signed the Rios Libres petition against HidroAysen’s proposal to dam the Baker and Pascua here, don’t feel bad, we’ve got another opportunity for you to take action, and it’s pretty awesome in and of itself.

Launching today, Thursday, June 21st — and running through Tuesday, July 3rd is the Rios Libres Petition Contest, in which you can help keep Patagonia Wild and win prizes at the same time! To TAKE ACTION, and be entered for a chance to win an Osprey Atmos or Aura backpack, all you have to do is go here to sign the petition, and then be sure to SHARE it on Facebook or Twitter.

Want more background info? Here’s the scoop on the proposed dam project:

Last year, Chilean officials gave the green light to the HidroAysén project, which would build five mega-dams on two of Patagonia’s wildest rivers. Now, one of the two corporations behind HidroAysén has suspended progress on the project indefinitely. Urge Chilean President Piñera to show environmental leadership at the upcoming Earth Summit by overturning the approval of HidroAysén and saving Patagonia from destruction.

Your willingness to sign the petition in solidarity with the 72% of Chileans who are against damming Patagonia could help save these wild rivers so TAKE ACTION now! And keep in mind, your participation could just win you your very own Osprey pack, as well!

    Do we have to destroy everything that is wild and free? Don’t dam this (or any other free-flowing) river. Please.

    Hope this helps, the world needs to be aware of the environment and the long term impact. It’s nice to see Ospreys dedication to the project
