28 July 2004
Salta, Argentina: The Greenpeace Jaguars, a group of volunteer activitists on motorbikes, are trying to stop the destruction of Argentine forests by stopping bulldozers and urging people to call Argentine embassies asking to suspend such activities.
The campaign is run by Greenpeace Argentina, an environmental organization, to help save rare wildlife and plant species from being destroyed and prevent displacement of indigenous communities.
According to the organization, the destruction of forests could results in displacement of hundreds of indigenous people, loss of thousands of animal and plant species and soil degredation.
