It is the Maica lake, the floodplain east of Santarem. Since this particular ecossystem is very limited (it represents of about 8% of the entire Amazon Basin) we should protect it. It is protection is vital not only for native species in the floodplain, but also to species that live on mainland Rainforest and many many migratory species.
This little river will soon be dredged and a new grain terminal and a port will be built in the area, posting death where life is abundant. It is a privilege to be alive and see it before it turns to hell, it is a shame to see all this and call back that money is over everything else, even above life.
