    This March 20, 2007 photo provided by Ian Fulton shows the Gurney's Pitta bird foraging in the leaf litter at the Khao Nor Chuchi wildlife preserve in southern Thailand. In neighboring Myanmar, as many as 40,000 gorgeously plumed birds thrive in the lowland rainforests. The bird's status is among many reasons Myanmar is regarded as one of Asia's last bastions of biodiversity, and why environmentalists view the country's steps toward opening its doors with some fear.

The bill must still be approved by Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff. The banner reads "Dilma, saves the forests". REUTERS/Nacho Doce (BRAZIL - Tags: CIVIL UNREST POLITICS ENVIRONMENT)
