Foundation Wild Life Argentina

On the scandalous reassignment of bottoms destined to the portfolio of Environment to the governmental program Soccer for all, the transmission of this sport in the public TV Argentina. The day Thursday 18 of February occurred to know the surprising news the deflection of more than 140 million weights of games destined the Atmosphere Secretariat, to cover the deficit generated by the agreement between the Government and the AFA. Before this situation, the Foundation Wild Life Argentina expresses its opposition to the reassignment of games destined to the environmental management for other aims and solicits that this measurement is reviewed. The decision does not stop astonishing, when in once again clear leaving the priority that has delicate problematic the environmental one in the policies of State. In spite of the insistence in the official speech of the importance of the subject in the public agenda, this reduction of the budget for the area is only one shows more of the little attention that offers to one of the main subjects of preoccupation of the society. It is simple to add examples on this affirmation: the concise budgetary game assigned to the implementation of the Law of Forests (less than 50% of the anticipated thing in the norm), the lack of concrete measures to solve the problematic one of the fishing of the hake (whose population was in the last reduced 20 years in a 80%), between many others.

The subtraction of bottoms destined to the environmental portfolio, happens at the worse moment and of the worse way. Still more increasing the distrust from the provincial governments, who still are defining their territorial ordering, and who will not be prepared to jeopardize efforts to the handling of their native forests if the intention does not glimpse at least to fulfill it jeopardize from the National State. A clear sample of this situation is the proposal of Territorial Ordering presented/displayed recently by the Province of Formosa, in which almost 90% of their territory have been in the lowest category of protection and without possibility of acceding to the subsidy on the part of the Nation.
