Paradise Lost - Illegal logging in the Paradise Rainforests

PNG's (Papua New Guinea) remote location suits illegal and unethical logging companies. It makes it very difficult to prove workers' claims of mistreatment and poor conditions. Conditions for PNG forest communities and logging workers were mostly undocumented - until now.

In September 2008, Greenpeace went to the heart of the forest to expose the impacts of logging on its people, the environment and our global climate.
