Activists Build Dams in Indonesia

A less known cause of climate change is the destruction of peatlands in primary forests to make way for production forests. This is another problem Greenpeace is committed to stop.

This was part of their "Climate Defender Camp" at Kampar Peninsula, Teluk Meranti village, Riau province, Indonesia
