World-Wide-Walks/between earth & water / FALLS
Niagara - Iguazu

Walking the borders of Canada / U.S. Argentina / Brazil,
along the majestic falls Niagara and Iguazu set the stage to witness
conflicting environmental and cultural concerns. On one hand, these falls
generate enormous hydro-electric power. However, damming waterways
has also resulted in the devastating loss of ecosystems
inhabited for centuries by indigenous peoples.
Plans for a new dam on the Iguazu River were curtailed after an
acute drought in 2009 reduced the massive flow of the falls
to one third of its typical volume. [ ]
