    “Patagonia Azul in Chubut becomes Biosphere reserve; holds 40% of world's Magellan penguins”

    in the meanwhile, the stinky isleteers have massacred 5.000.000 (FIVE MILLION) penguins in just 20 years.

    says it all about them, no?

    Question is… where is Think drying out? Single Malt started the rot, but when that became unaffordable the meths did the real damage. The sage of Chubut gradually lost his mojo and ended up in rehab methinks?

    Question is, rather than Penguins how many Amerindians have the RGs massacred? And… how many will they starve, beat or wrongfully imprison in the future. The UK supports repatriation of the Spanish and Italian squatters. Go home?

    This is one of the many unique places Argentina has as part of the natural world we have so far taken for granted.
    I hitchhiked through Patagonia in the summer of 1970 and that trip remains one of my most treasured memories. The Península de Valdés in Chubut, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the only continental place where southern elephant seals have their breeding grounds, is a jewel all around.
    With the help of UNESCO and other forward-looking organizations and citizens, let's hope these treasures are kept for the world's future generations.

    A sensible post from Mashed Potato Head.

    Was that the last time you were in The Dark Country then?

    The future status of the patagonian region of rotting roadkill will likely be determined by its creditors at some point in the future.

    @1. Actually, Magellanic penguins have died from argie landmines, argie oil spills and the lack of food because of argie overfishing. Surely you know this from the statistics produced by combined argie/Falklands research. Oh, sorry, threw your dolly out of your pram over that one, didn't you? How about all those argie warships that leak fuel?
    @5. You mean argieland isn't paying? You want more charity, graft, payouts, subsidies? What happened to the argie 'paradise'? Get in touch with 'Think', he's probably eaten most of them!
