That’s right, our signature event is coming to you virtually on Thursday, May 21 at 10:00 AM PST. Please join us for The Conservation Alliance (at Home) Breakfast with Kris Tompkins and Timmy O’Neill for an unfiltered interview about persevering through extraordinary challenges. These long-time friends will share personal stories about resiliency, and activism in a world where there is so much that needs to be done. You bring the coffee. Kris and Timmy will deliver a strong dose of inspiration and humor.
We expect to reach virtual capacity before May 21. Please register today to save your spot!
Kristine McDivitt Tompkins is the cofounder and president of Tompkins Conservation and the UN Patron of Protected Areas. The former CEO of Patagonia, Inc, she has spent the last 25 years protecting and restoring Chile and Argentina’s wild beauty and biodiversity through creating national parks, restoring wildlife, inspiring activism, and fostering economic vitality as a result of conservation. A key figure behind the establishment of 13 national parks in Argentina and Chile, she has helped to protect approximately 14.5 million acres through Tompkins Conservation and its partners. Along with her late husband Douglas Tompkins, who passed away in 2015, she is considered one of the most successful national park-oriented philanthropists in history. In 2017, she received the Carnegie Medal of Philanthropy. A global leader in conservation, she currently serves as Chair of National Geographic Society’s Last Wild Places campaign.
Timmy O’Neill is a rock climber and outdoor advocate dedicated to ‘adventure impact’ – the combination of outdoor adventure and social impact. He is co-founder and former executive director of Paradox Sports, a nationwide, adaptive-climbing non-profit. O’Neill also volunteers as an ophthalmic tech in sub Saharan Africa with CureBlindness.org and is a brand ambassador with Patagonia, Osprey Packs and Clif Bar. Timmy is recovering from a recent subarachnoid hemorrhage that took place while traveling in Patagonia.
If there was ever a time to bring our community together to hear a good story and take action, that time is right now. We’ll miss seeing everyone in person at Outdoor Retailer this June, but we welcome the opportunity to make this event accessible to both the outdoor community and conservation activists around the world.
