Pacific Biodiversity Institute has produced the first map showing all of the roadless areas in South America. This map offers a preliminary assessment and will be refined throughout the project.The roadless areas may include some small indigenous communities and their ancestral farms, but they are not densely populated and are not connected to the outside world by roads. These maps illustrate roadless areas over 1 million hectares. In these South American wildlands, the planet's biodiversity reaches its maximum expression. That is why we call it “biota maxima.”

PBI's earlier work in South America included assistance to Parques Para Chile with a proposed expansion of the Araucaria Biosphere Reserve and assistance to Fundacion Lahuen in the establishment of Parque National Isla Magdalena in southern Chile through involvement in a rapid ecological assessment that provided the scientific basis for the Park.
