Sérgio, quando tiver um tempo, por favor responda minha pergunta abaixo. E se tiver mais tempo ainda, dê uma olhada nesse site: http://www.institutocarbonobrasil.org.br... e me diga se recomenda à alguém que coloque fotos de árvores de grande porte no PN. Tenho uma amiga moçambicana e ela já me disse: Os chineses estão partindo para cima da África e estão devastando muito pois lá os governos são corruptos.

NeilDazet, thanks for the link, but searching at PN sharks pictures I found the GPS location of each one. So, they are not protected, they are exposed to poachers and the preservacionists can't face them. What PN can do to change this?

Emanuel, poachers can use google, books...to search in a big area, but nowadays there are many smartphones and cameras that has the GPS function, even the underwater ones, so it's precise. The skill of hiding is very important for them to survive. Thanks for not given a precise position.

Jared, I much appreciated your ecological intelligence! I chose your picture to paste that message because I had a very bad experience with this owl: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/710... I was at a window of a place where I worked and I saw some guys trying to steel her offspprings, I told them not to do that, they went away, I came back to work and after 10 minutes I came to see and they were far away, had already taken the offsprings. The mother owl made angry screems. I'd like it would never happen again. Thanks and congratulations!

Sérgio, não tenho dúvidas quanto aos excelentes propósitos do Projeto Noah e da grande maioria de seus usuários, porém não tenho dúvida que bilhões de criaturas não tem a mesma sorte desse tigre da foto acima e, assim como eles já foram milhares, agora, por causa do homem, estão próximos da extinção, ou seja, todos os animais e plantas que hoje existem aos milhares amanhã poderão ser extintos pela ação da nossa raça.
Como essa política de não indicar claramente a localização de animais em perigo é na prática?
Obrigado pela atenção e tomara que não tenhamos uma batalha de egos e sim uma batalha pela proteção da biodiversidade.

Why does anybody put it's own adress in the internet?
A: It's dangerous!!! Nobody knows who is watching!
Why does we put GPS position of every creature we find?
We don't care about their safety.
Beautiful photos makes us happy!
GPS position makes poachers happy!
Please, change GPS position a bit and do what PN should do!!!

We must be responsible as we love nature. In the sea, Man are decimating fish everywhere because of the great tecnology we have to locate them and Japanese "whalers scientistis" are doing their work too.
As you said below: "wildlife trafficking is an estimated $10 billion per year global enterprise, the third most valuable illicit commerce in the world behind drugs and weapons. "
How are we using the tecnology of internet + GPS?
Showing here where the poachers must go!
Looks like PN don't really care about this!
It's like selling traps and say "but I never hurt any animal"!!!

I believe that scientits should work hard to increase genetic variability with the captive animals and try to release the sons in apropriated areas. PN does very well the job of showing where these animals are in jail !!!
