13$ Day ofthe Campaign

On Tuesday night Canal Zone homes will be invaded by trolls, ballerinas,
clowns and maybe even a pumpkin or two scouring the neighborhoods in
search- of treats. Like Bonnie Oliver of Cardenas you'd better have plenty
of goblin food on liand to satisfy Halloween sweet tooths or a "'little
.monster" may do a trick on you. Wonder .about the identity of these trick
or treaters? See page 4.

More Than 64 Years of Service to World -Commerce

Friday, October 27, 1978

Vol. XVII No. 10

The Panama Canal, the Depart-
ment of Defense and the Panama
Government have launched a joint
anti-deforestationl program aimed to
control and prevent further destruc-
tion of the natural forest areas cur-
rently within the Canal Zone. Co-
operative actions will include in
formation and education campaigns
and surveillance and enforcement
measures during the next 12 months
which are designed to eliminate
slash-and-burn agriculture, a prac-
tice which over the past several
years has become an increasingly
acute problem in the Canal Zone
-forest. The illegal cutting, burning
and farming in the Canal Zone has
resulted in deforestation that is a
threat to the water supply,of the
Panama Canal. It could sharply
affect the capacity of th'e system to
support interoceanic commerce.
It has been determined that
within the Canal Zone about 500
hectares (1,250 acres) of forest are
cleared each year from January
through April, when farmers slash-
and-burn virgin forest to prepare to
/plant crops after the first heavy
Canal Zone areas which have
b~een damaged by slash-and-burn
farming include the Chiva Chiva
area, Madden Forest Preserve, the
Northeast Canal Bank along Pipe-
line Road and the entire West Bank,
including the' military, training
A recent census by Panama Gov-
ernment officials of squatters living
in the Canal Zone, and farmers
living near the Canal Zone who

enter the Zone illegally to plant and
harvest crops shows that there are
1,041 farmers working lands on the
East Bank and West Bank, 849 of
whom reside in Panama and of
whom. 192 are squatters in the
Canal Zone.
Recognizing that an anti-defores-
tation program must be adopted
before the next slash-and-burn
farming cycle begins in November,
the -Environmental Subcommittee
of the Binational Working Group
held a number of meetings to
develop a plan of action.
Attending these meetings were
personnel of th~e Panama .Canal
Company, Agency of Renewable
Natural Resources, Project for the
Integrated Development of the

Panama Canal Atlantic Area, Pan-
ama Canal Eastern Area Proje~ct,
Paisama Census and Statistics; Min-
istry of Planning, U.S. Agency fof
International Development, U.S.
Embassy, United Stites Southern
Codunand, 193d Infantry Brigade
and Smithsonian Tropical Research
; As a result of these meetings, it
was agreed that Panama and the
Canal Zone will conduct an environ-
mental educational campaign aimed,
to~the farmer population as well as
the general public in Panama. The
purpose is to str ss the importance
of preserving natural resources. This
will be accomplished through a
hinational information program.

Company quarters to modular type
Each residence will have all
existing jacks replaced, or two new

Newspaper -articles describing the
Adverse environmental impact of
cutting, burning and farming on the
ed forest ecology already have ap-
~e peakedd in the Panama press. Con-
m ferences have been held between
ePanamanian officials and farmers lo-
'a cated near the Canal Zone to dis-
ncuss the effects of forest destrue-
tion. Throughout the coming
Months, radio and television inter-
views and announcements are
scheduled for frequent airing on
Panamanian and Canal Zone radio
and TV.
In addition to the edlucationlal
campaign, an enforcement and sur-
veillance program directed towards
preventing further cutting, clearing
and burning operations has begun.
The Panama Canal's Police Divi-
sion is responsible for implementa-
tion of surveillance and enforce-
ment. Coordination of the program
is the responsibility of the Can~al's
environmental control officer.
In addition to preservation of the
watershed in the Canal Zone, the
control program will contribute to
the protection of the forest itself,
wildlife habitats, water quality, andi
Ired~ction of soil erosion.

La Companiia del Canal de Pa-
nam8, el Departamento de Defensa
de los Estados Unidos y el Gobierno
de Panami han iniciado una cam-
paila conjunta encaminada a con-
trolar y prevenir la continuaci6n de
l'a destrucci6n de las Areas foresta-
les que actualmente quedan dentro
de la Zona del Canal. Entre las ac-
ciones bilaterales, se incluirln cam-
patias de divulgaci6n y educativas
y medidas de vigilancia y durante
los pri~ximos 12 meses dirigidas a
eliminar la agriculture de tala y
quema, pr~ctica que durante los 6l-
timos afios se ha convertido en un
serio problema en la Zona del
Canal. La tala illegal, quema y agri-
culturai en la Zona del Canal ha
dado lugar a la deforestaci6n que
amenaza la fuente de agua que
abastece al Canal de Panama y que
podria afectar la capacidad de la
via maritima para tender el co-
mercio interoce~nico.
Se ha calculado que dentro de la
Zona del Canal anualmente se des-
pejan unas 500 hectiireas de selva
entire enero y abril cuando los agri-
cultores talan y queman la selva
virgen para preparar la tierra para
la siembra despubs de las primeras
Iuvias fuertes.
Entre las Areas de la Zona del
Canal que mis han sido afectadas
por este tipo de agriculture figuran
el Area de Chiva Chiva, la Reserva
Forestal de Madden, la ribera nor-
este del Canal a 10 largo del Camino
Pipeline y toda la ribera occidental
del Canal incluyendo las Areas de
entrenamiento military.

1,041 agricultores trabajando las
tierras de las riberas orientales y
occidentales, de los cuales 849 re-
siden en Panami y 192 son agricul-
tores indigentes en la Zona del
La Subcomisi6n del Medio Am-
biente del Grupo de Trabajo Bi-
nacional ha efectuado un sinndmero
de reuniones para desarrollar un
plan de acci6n basado en el hecho
de que se necesita adoptar un pro-
grama de prevenci6n de la defores-
taci6n antes que e] pr6ximo cilo
de agriculture .de tala y quema
comience en noviembre.
Participaron en estas reuniones
representantes de la Compaiiia del
Canal de Panami; la Direcei6n Na-
cional de Recursos Naturales Reno-
vables de PanamB; el Proyecto para
el Desarrollo Integral del Sector
Atlintico del Canal de Panam6; el

de Planificaci6n y Politica Econ6-
mica; la Agencia para el Desarrollo
International; la Embajada de los
Estados Unidos; el Comando Sur
del EjBrcito de los Estados Unidos;
la Brigada 193 de Infanteria, y el
Institute de Investigacibn Tropical
A travks de estas reuniones, Pa-
nami y la Zona del Canal se com-
prometieron a llevar a cabo una
campatia de divulgaci6n sobre el
medio ambiente dirigida a la pobla-
ci6n agricultora y al pdiblico en ge-
-neral en PanamA. El propbsito de
esta campafia es recalcar la impor-
tancia de conservar los recuirsos na-
turales. Esto se Ilevar6 a cabo por
medio de un program ~binacional
(Contindia et la pdigina 4)

El martes en la noche, los hogares en la Zona del Canal ser~n invadidos
por gnomes, bailarinas, payasos y quiz~s una que- otra calabaza durante el
tradicional recorrido de los vecindarios en busca de golosinas. Como ha
