So, Why did you Cut Down the Rainforest?

Uh, i needed a parking lot. Panamanians learned well from their former colonial master, the USA - greed and laziness rule - if you are going ot cut down a rain forest - do it on a weekend or a holiday - no one will notice or care???

The clearing, conducted by a transportation cooperative called Serafin Niño, from Colon, is occurring in the buffer zone of the Galeta Protected Landscape and near Galeta Point Marine Laboratory, a facility of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. The land will likely be used to store transportation equipment that moves cargo to and from the ports of Colon and the Free Zone.
