It is not only extract the NTFP for daily needs, but it seems like a huge land transformation to other form for other use but forest. If we let this thing happen, it means that the the disparition of the Park, so the biodiversity and the richness of flora and fauna are in threat. So, as you can see in this illustration.
  • Do you want this change in the protected zone will be converted in huge track like this.
