New short film explores legacy of The North Face cofounder Doug Tompkins

Doug Tompkins passed away in December of 2015 during a kayaking accident in Chile. The cofounder of The North Face, Tompkins was also one of the world’s greatest conservationists to have ever lived.

A new documentary done in coordination with his Tompkins Conservation foundation takes a look back at his life and legacy. “Douglas Tompkins: Wild Legacy” is a wonderful short that gives some better insight into how much the man cared for preserving what the Earth has given us.
