    A plan to build a road through a remote national park in Bolivia is causing controversy.

    Some living in the Tipnis national park and indigenous reserve see it as a way to improve links to the rest of the country for business opportunities.

    But others see it as a serious threat to their pristine environment.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from Bolivia.
