A guy at Penn State University is trying to get public interest in the
creation of a National Park in the demilitarized zone between North and
South Korea. His belief is that by creating the park, we can foster better
(some) relations between North and South Korea while protecting many of the
threatened plants and animals in that beautiful piece of earth.

This area supports at least 40 rare plant species, 8 rare fish, and an
awfully lot of land on which people have "let alone" for a lot of years.
