Last time, we posed a real stumper. No one made a guess, and precious few of you even hinted that you'd
looked at it...
So, this time: same area, different map, and some hints. The River in question is the largest river in the area, and among the most significant shared water resources in it's Hemisphere. The river basin drains one of the largest areas of contiguous tropical forest in the region and is extremely rich in natural and cultural resources. The river also flows through economically and politically marginalized regions of two countries. The ecological and hydrological integrity of this watershed faces numerous threats from deforestation, hydroelectric development and mineral exploitation on both sides of the international border.
