Rechazan exploitation de hidrocarburos dentro zona protegida paraguaya

La Organización de Conservación y Desarrollo Sostenible del país (Opades) exigió via its official profiles in social networks the immediate veto of any document that puts at risk a “una importante, única y biodiversa área silvestre protegida”.

The Chamber of Deputies sanctioned yesterday and submitted for its study in the Senate a change project for the legislation that establishes the preservation of the Médanos del Chaco National Park, with 605 thousand 75 hectares.

La nueva normative posibilitaría a empresas privadas realizar trabajos de prospection, exploración y exploración de hidrocarburos y minerales, algo que en 2019 denied la Corte Suprema de Justicia.

Under the hashtag #losmedanosnosetocan hundreds of citizens of this southern country made visible the importance of rescuing the park of the intentions of the entities behind the exploitation project.

Various users coincided in affirming that the cost of the destruction of the zone is greater than the supposed economic benefits that could be done with the “prospección” and exploitation of hydrocarbons.

Opades recalled that los médanos protect una naturaleza única, con una biodiversity fantastica que aún ha sido estudiada a profundidad, tal como reza en su plan de manejo.

El riesgo de erosión ecológica es muy elevado y cualquier modificación o uso inadecuado puede acarrear una catástrofe, pointed out.

In addition to the flora, according to specialists and lovers of these landscapes, the fauna is also one of the riches of the Chaco plains.

This national park covers part of the departments of Boquerón and Alto Paraguay, bordering Bolivia, and was created by Decree 2726/2004 with the purpose of protecting a mixture of forests and shrubs that are not found anywhere else.

Conserva una muestra representativa de los únicos sistemas del Chaco seco, e inclues la transition de un panorama arido a más humido.

El gato tirica and el guanaco destacan entre las especies whose habitat would be seriously threatened by the possible exploitation of hydrocarbons in dicho national park.

A los bienes naturales, los expertos agregan los recursos históricos, pues abundan en el lugar las referencias a la guerra del Chaco de 1932 a 1935.
