Palm plantation East Kalimantan, Indonesia

A view of young palm trees in Telen subdistrict, East Kalimantan, Indonesia. This site, or concession, is typical of the currently unsustainable practices of the palm industry. Deforestation is driving climate change and pushing endangered species like the orangutan to the brink of extinction.

According to recent estimates, Indonesia is the third largest greenhouse gas polluter of any nation on the planet, largely due to the destruction of its rainforest and peatlands. Clearing massive tracts of forest also has a major impact on wildlife diversity, and creates social conflict with indigenous communities.
