  • World Trout® Initiative

    Trout are at the mercy of humanity due to overfishing and destruction of habitat ranging from logging to war, immense climatic changes to fish simply being a basic food source. In order to raise money for the groups working to protect the fish, an idea was hatched to utilize the stunning artwork that James Prosek created during global travels for his two books: Trout of North America and Trout of the World. World Trout is not strictly a Patagonia initiative; World Trout is everyone's initiative. It is an ongoing program that all companies and interested parties can participate in to raise funds that directly combat declining trout populations and habitats. Recipients include: Balkan Trout Restoration Group, Yellowstone Park Foundation, Friends of Wild Salmon, Bonefish Tarpon Unlimited, Penobscot River Restoration Project, Colorado Greenback Restoration Group, Obirame Restoration Group Read More

To support grassroots groups that also use film as a form of activism, we created a media grants program. This program specifically funds environmental nonprofits that use media, mostly film, as a tool tightly linked to direct-action campaigns. To evaluate grant proposals, we have a council made up of employees with strong backgrounds in film and other media. Read More
