Mashco-Piro 'uncontacted' Peruvian tribe pictured

Date : 31st January 2012, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Chance encounters near an isolated Amazon tribe have resulted in the most detailed pictures ever taken of them. Campaign group Survival International has released images of the Mashco-Piro tribe, which lives near the Manu National Park in southeastern Peru. The tribe has had little if any peaceful contact with the outside world, but sightings are on the rise. Survival blames the change on gas and oil projects and illegal logging in the area, pushing the tribe into new lands.
