  The next wave of enforcing environmental zones: Fill them with land mines. (h/t The Jeffery)
CNN.com - Penguins stay snug and secure in minefields - Sep 27, 2005: "Argentina, which puts the number of remaining mines closer to 15,000, is offering to help clear more fields to adhere to an international treaty on land mines.

Falkland Islanders, however, are not pressing on the issue, and most believe it is better not to fiddle with the fields.

'There is a risk that only 95 percent would be removed,' said Falkland Islands Gov. Howard Pearce. 'You would bring a sense of complacency to the community and increase rather than reduce the chance of injury.'

Besides, he noted, 'The environmentalists like them.'"
