Passing of Patricia Tatiana Rodríguez Castillo
Patricia, or Patty as she is remembered by those close to her, had an extensive and dedicated career in the National Forestry Corporation, where she worked as an official, park ranger and administrator of National Reserves in the Araucanía Region. Patricia stood out for her dedication to service, for being a passionate advocate for women's rights and for reaching out to the indigenous communities in her hometown of Malalcahuello.
It is with great sadness that the UNESCO MAB community bids farewell to an exemplary colleague. We pay tribute to Patricia's vocation and express our sincere condolences to her loved ones.
