    Brazilian indigenous youth apply traditional body paint before a protest against the construction of the Belo Monte Hydroelectric power plant in front of the Federal Court in Sao Paulo October 17, 2011. The Brazilian government approved in June the construction of the Belo Monte dam in the Xingu river, which has drawn strong criticism from natives, environmentalists and even international celebrities like singer Sting and director James Cameron. A Brazilian judge has ordered the halt of construction works in a multi-billion hydroelectric project in the Amazon alleging it affects local fishing activities, while Environment Minister says the dam is complying with the law and is properly licensed.

    In this Sept. 30, 2011 file photo, provided by the United States Coast Guard, the crew of the Kodiak based Coast Guard Cutter Munro monitors the Bangun Perkasa, a stateless fishing vessel suspected of illegal large scale high seas drift net fishing in Alaska. Finding rogue vessels to a large degree can be described as trying to find a needle in a haystack. But U.S. officials and some environmentalists say progress is being made, with multinational patrol and enforcement agreements and the potential for trade sanctions against countries that engage in illegal, unreported and unregulated, or IUU, fishing.
