Many international conservation groups are working to save the rainforest—what rights do people have to interfere with how another sovereign nation chooses to manage its lands? If the government of Bolivia is willing to allow millions of acres of jungle to be destroyed to promote the logging industry which provides employment to their citizens), should people intervene?
