BRASILIA, Brazil, June 6, (ENS) - Brazil commemorated World Environment Day yesterday by creating four new protected areas, three of them in the Amazon rainforest. Following a speech in observance of the special day, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva signed the documents authorizing the three new protected areas in the Amazon, including Mapinguari National Park in Amazonas state, named after a mythical red furry creature supposedly living in the rainforest.
