asergio,
If you were a poacher or a hunter, what would you prefer, to search a specie in a entire forest or take a look at the GPS position a member of PN took with their iphone? With our help, they will know much more, PN is becoming a full menu to them to choose. If we do not do something about, we'll be their partners!!!
Thanks LarsKorb to trully defend nature!!! I'd like to share with you the sugestions I gave to PN...

Thanks for the comment, asergio,
but I think Gustavo made a valid point (in the wrong tonality though).
He reminded us (everyone) to overthink our personal responsibility.
That includes of course Project Noah in my opinion.
We take it serious.

Gustavo, I understand your concern, and I very much agree with you. But (there is allways a but...) the poachers and hunters in my area just don't need the Noah to know where to go for to find animals and plants. Actually, I believe they know more about the forest then most scholars. And, almost all animals and plants we expose here are, as you know, living free in nature. I mean, as we can spot them, the bad guys can find them too. I don't think PN is endangering nature more then, for example, Discovery's or National Geographic's documentaries. But, of course, that's just my opinion.

Hi LarsKorb,
I talked about this by e-mail with Yasser, and I believe he is a very kind person, but nature can not wait! It's hard to have patience while many species are desapearing...
Thanks for answering, showing that you really care about nature!

Gustavo,
I can see that you're true with your heart. Much appreciated.
But please keep a less offending attitude.
Yasser is surely aware of what he's posting (as foudner of PN) and the "exact" positions are (I ensure you) not that exact as it may appear to you.
To show you that we take your comment absolutely serious, I also ensure you that we have specific debates about this issue within the circle of Rangers. You are definetely not unheard.
Thanks for the comment, but also your understanding.

Hi Yasser!
What are you going to do to help the species (mainly the endemic or in extintion) we are revealing the exact position??? The hunters are "in love" with Project Noah too!!! What about create a denounce secction, offering cute Patches? We have to be responsible for what we're doing, their lives worth much more than cute patches...
