dc.description.abstractNumerous case studies have shown that international tourism can contribute to the successful conservation of threatened mammal species in developing (Buckley 2010, 2014; Naidoo et al. 2016) and newly industrialized (Buckley and Pabla 2012) nations. Such findings are supported by population accounting approaches and population viability models (Buckley et al. 2012, 2016). Similar outcomes have not previously been demonstrated, however, for domestic tourism in either developed or developing nations (Wardle et al. 2018). Here we describe what appears to be the first documented example of a net positive conservation outcome from domestic tourism for an imperiled mammal, the native huemul deer (Hippocamelus bisulcus) (Figure 1). The site is Huilo Huilo (https://huilohuilo.com/reserva-biologica), a 1000‐km2 private reserve in Chilean Patagonia, which was purchased for conservation purposes in the 1990s and 2000s (Vidal et al. 2018). The reserve predominantly supports primary cool temperate rainforest, including old‐growth Nothofagus dombeyi. During site visits from the 1990s to 2019, we audited conservation and tourism activities and facilities at Huilo Huilo, and interviewed conservation staff, tourism staff, and tourists. We also analyzed published and unpublished documents on tourism and conservation in the reserve and the surrounding region, and reviewed information on corporate structures and finances provided by the reserve's owners.
