The clarity and forcefulness that provides regulations “Wildlife Conservation” and “Conservation and Sustainable Use of Biological Diversity” and its components may not be enough for a successful implementation in the Province of Misiones.
Happens that cases of illegal animal and plant predation are a constant in both public and private nature reserves is a situation that allows affirming that without any fear of incurring excess, we are facing an unfortunate scenario of permanent and unpunished attacks on biodiversity.
It is an unbroken predation, sometimes directed at wildlife like much of the native flora; manifested in numerous acts of looting nature throughout various natural shelters located within the provincial boundaries, marked by a failure of control and a lack of treatment integrated to the problem.
As we have mentioned, violence against children is part of a reality though it is a sometimes-silent scourge against humanity. In this context, if we talk about sexual abuse, sexual violence or sexual exploitation for commercial purposes, these are harmful criminal practices for the dignity and fundamental rights of children.
The First World Congress against Sexual Exploitation of Children (Stockholm, 1996) defined sexual exploiter as a person “who benefits unfairly from some imbalance of power between himself and a person under 18 years, with the intention of exploiting sexually that person, whether for profit or for personal pleasure. ”
Violence against children happens everywhere in the world and comes in many ways; sexual exploitation of children is one of them, and the most outrageous.
In fulfilling our responsibilities and ethical commitment, we engage in the protection of fundamental human rights and fully condemn the sexual exploitation of children and adolescents in travel and tourism. Thus, we have adhered to the Code of Conduct for the Protection from Sexual Exploitation of Children and Adolescents in Travel and Tourism, to contribute concretely to the prevention of this crime.
