A note on a local blog (Parque Nacional do Iguaçu: menos onças e mais transgênicos) reports on a recent survey of the puma population inside the Iguazu National Park. Scientists aren’t sure at all but estimate the number of individuals left might range between 6 and 12. On the verge of disappearing. At the same time, the park’s advisory body agreed to bring GM crops much closer to the park. The former barrier of 10 kilometers have been reduced to 1.2 km.

Public and private funds are being spent to get the Iguazu Falls elected as one of the new wonders of the world. Under the light of how the environment is being taken care of, money down the drain, if you ask me.
