For most of the last year, our researchers have been investigating and documenting gross acts of environmental destruction in Indonesia’s last remaining forests. What these investigations reveal is a story of one massive, faceless company with links to illegal, and irresponsible behavior and the rapid disappearance of critically endangered animals such as the Sumatran tiger.

Is KFC taking the biscuit?

KFC headquarters in the US still has its head in the sand about its links to forest destruction, but Greenpeace campaigners around the world are finding inventive ways to challenge the status quo. This time by speaking directly to the people who work at the company’s headquarters... with cookies.

Greenpeace volunteers and forest campaign staff visited the Canadian headquarters of KFC bright and early one morning last week for a friendly visit. This time bearing gifts of coffee and tiger-themed cookies.

These are the five words that say a lot but apparently mean little to Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), a company that has made a mantra out of repeating something which is simply not true. And today, we’ve released proof that what APP says is wrong.

Cleared forest in Sumatra, in what was once tiger habitat

The news from Indonesia today that Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) has moved a tiger from one part of South Sumatra province to another in order to protect it.

The dead tiger, found trapped on an APP concession earlier this month, is carried away

Earlier this week, we released some sad, shocking footage showing the slow and gruesome death of a Sumatran tiger that became trapped within an Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) concession in Sumatra's Riau province. The video footage also revealed that in the same APP area, recent forest clearance had taken place in an area identified as tiger habitat.
