Mother Nature Network, "Border collies run like the wind to bring new life to Chilean forest"
1.4 million acres of land were destroyed during a devastating wildfire in Chile in 2017. The Torres sisters, Constanza and Francisca, had the idea to start reseeding the area with the help of their energetic sheep dogs
Six-year-old border collie mom Das and her two-year-old pups Summer and Olivia take to the forest with backpacks of native seeds. As they run through the woods for the joy of it, seeds stream out and take root in the forest. They can distribute as many as 20 pounds of seeds in a day. "We have seen many results in flora and fauna coming back to the burned forest!" says Torres. The sisters purchase the seeds out of their own pockets. The Chilean landscape is coming back to life, thanks to this energetic and caring family and its intelligent, hard-working dogs.
