New natural park on the way in Peru

In this time of many reported and unreported degradations of the rainforest I am glad to see the occasional story like this one. I also find it hopeful that the initiative was largely driven by the local communities. The government may no be able to adequately monitor such a large area, or intentionally turn a blind eye to some activities, but the local communities know what is going on and with official National Park status it will be harder for government to escape its responsibilities.

Thanks for posting.
