Manokwari, West Papua Province, Indonesia 17 October 2008 A group of Papuanese traditional dancers greets Madeline Habib, captain of Greenpeace's vessel Esperanza, during a welcoming ceremony. Greenpeace's "Forests for Climate" ship tour to Indonesia aims to highlight the catastrophic impacts of deforestation for palm oil, logging and other industry expansion, on the global climate, biodiversity loss and forest-dependent people. Papua is the last frontier of intact ancient forest in Indonesia. The Esperanza (Spanish for "hope") carries the message ‘Melindungi Hutan, Menyelamatkan Iklim’, Indonesian for ‘Protecting Forests Saves our Climate’.
