Twenty students from the Monterey Institute accompanied Professor Jan Black and Judge Juan Guzman Tapia, most notable for prosecuting former Dictator Augusto Pinochet, on a research tour of Mapuche communities in southern Chile last January. The Mapuche are an indigenous group, comprising about 4% of Chile's total population. Their communities now face environmental, socio-economic, and human rights issues.
Last January fifteen intrepid graduate students (aka Team Monterey 4) traveled to the Bajo Lempa region of El Salvador to tackle agricultural, water access, and conservation issues. Visit the Equipo Monterey blog to explore their adventures searching for illicit turtle eggs at the local markets, or designing workshops for food producers to share knowledge and potential growth strategies.
