Many of you may be aware of the current media coverage surrounding a proposal by timber giant, Asia Pulp & Paper, to clear 33,776 hectares of forest in Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra, Indonesia. This devastating proposal will severely endanger the 100 orangutans released in the park to date via the Bukit Tigapuluh Sumatran Orangutan Reintroduction Project – the only reintroduction site for this critically endangered species.

We call for immediate support on this issue and encourage members of the public to write a letter to Asia Pulp & Paper, requesting a withdrawal of its proposal. A letter template can be accessed here, or you can sign our online petition here.

We thank you for your help and support. Don't know much about Palm Oil? Click here for the complete guide
