    Plan for a huge protected area connecting Brasil, Columbia and Venezuela

    Planning the world's largest protected area

    Colombia's president Manuel Santos announced a plan to establish the world’s largest protected area,
    covering an area almost four times the size of Germany. A large part of the area in which the corridor
    shall be established are already under some sort of protection. For Martin von Hildebrand, connecting
    the last remaining stretches is crucial:

    "It is a manifestation of political unity and will of the three counties. Right now we have a mosaic of parks,
    indigenous areas and protected areas. Sometimes there is a connection between them. But nevertheless,
    they are more like islands and are still working as individual areas," Hildebrand tells DW. The corridor shall
    emphasize the common vision of the three countries".

    He hopes that at the COP, the leaders will decide on putting the plan of the corridor forward and having the
    plan put into reality in the next five years.

    At first sight this looks like a good plan. I am curious to see how this unfold.
    If this corridor can become a friendly asylum for indigenous people and wildlife that would be great.
