Saving Indonesia's rainforests

Last edited 14 March 2014 at 12:30pm

Indonesia's rainforests are a biodiversity hotspot, rich in endemic species, and vital in regulating the Earth's climate. But these forests are being torn down for palm oil, pulp and paper plantations - making Indonesia the world's third largest greenhouse gas emitter and threatening endangered species such as orang-utans with extinction. Greenpeace is campaigning globally to protect Indonesia's rainforests.
