| Resumen: ||We reluctantly summarize this report below. Why reluctantly? Because we feel that much of the problem in Corcovado stems from the very human desire to want to condense a complex problem into a few simple policy statements, thereby ignoring the operational details that truly make the difference between a success and a failure in planning and predicting the behavior of a complex system. Evict the gold miners, yes. But the details of how it is to be done are the real story. Declare a state of emergency for the Park Service, yes. But whether eviction succeeds depends not on its declaration but rather what one does with the resources thus made available. Do the gold miners damage the Park? Yes, but not within the details of their understanding of either a national park or the word "damage". Discuss Corcovado, yes. But recognize that it is only a specific case of the general challenge to the entire park system, and therefore details well beyond Corcovado need to be discussed|
