I will pray for the good guys to win the battle of saving this vital rainforest. Unfortunately, there is a lot against this happening.

i live in sud america most important is education in the scope public spirit environment their rights and that all countries are in a democracy make the voices of all laws made ​​us help ourselves to sustainable development, clean, and to clean educate, educate to participate in change, no one should be oblivious to reality, to common sense, and a healthy environment, the biggest problem is raised and hopefully be fast in my country for example is fresh water, education, lack of feeding opportunities but the atmosphere of sutento previously served when no work or being happy gathering of nature to live in peace and not be by pollution, the world neceista realistically address this all not continue their way of doing politics and leave the real axis outside the village to govern

el entusismo la alegria de compartir y el escuchar el atender no parece importante pero es lo mas humano atender a los demas y hay que uno levanta a otro aconsejando y dejando por un minuto de ser uno mismo y ser parte del todo y ahora para mi es que todos somos el problema pero nosotros por falta de apoyo como mano de obra los educadores las politicas son las que hasta hoy dia mostraron nuestro lado mas inhumano y hasta negligente...

The big enemy is logging, as several commenters noted on the original article.

Those who propagate the drug wars (cops, lawmakers, etc.) are most guilty for the consequences of their war.

We need to protect the natural world and forests.

Sad there are so many problems in doing so.
