Due to deforestation, water cycle and regional climate in the Xingu National Park area in Brazil has been altered resulting in the decline and collapse of fish stocks. The existence of an indigenous tribe, the Kamayura living in Xingu is being threatened.

In recent years, the Amazon is loosing 5,000 square miles of forests annually. As this continues, what has happened in Xingu may likely happen as well in different parts of the Amazon.

The comments to the article in the New York Times are also important reading I think.

To me the canary in the coal mine is the pink dolphin and other river dolphins in the world for that matter...things do not look well in the Amazon and unfortunately I think it is irreversible until homo sapiens becomes extinct...

Agreed Homo Sapiens (The so called civilised ones) should take a leaf out of the book of the so called Uncivilised tribes. At least the indians, eskimo's, Maoris, Ndebele etc. understand that the need to live by Natures Rules...
