'Half a million ants march in Germany' for protection of Amazon rainforest

Half a million ants were enlisted at a German zoo Tuesday by ecologists from the conservation group WWF to call for the protection of the Amazon rainforest, ahead of a trip by Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel to Brazil. At what the group described as a demonstration, leafcutter ants — a species indigenous to the world’s biggest forest — were seen carrying leaves bearing slogans cut out by WWF activists such as “Save the Amazon” and “Help, Merkel”. The action organised by the zoo in Cologne aims at calling on the German leader to push for the protection of the Amazon when she meets Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff on Thursday.
