A solution that can halt illegal deforestation
8 months ago

Rainforest Connection (RFCx) transforms recycled cell-phones into autonomous, solar-powered listening devices that can monitor and pinpoint chainsaw activity at great distance.

This changes the game by providing the world's first real-time logging detection system, pinpointing deforestation activity as it occurs, and providing the data openly, freely, and immediately to anyone around the world.

For the first time on a scalable level, responsible agents can arrive on the scene in time to interrupt the perpetrators and stop the damage, and the world can listen in as it occurs.

In March, Greenpeace activists unfurl a giant banner in the middle of orangutan habitat inside the concession owned by PT Multi Persada Gatramegah (PT MPG), a subsidiary of Musim Mas company, a palm oil supplier to Procter and Gamble in Muara Teweh, North Barito, Central Kalimantan. Greenpeace is calling P&G to stop destroying Indonesian rainforest and commit zero deforestation policy. Photo credit: © Ulet Ifansasti / Greenpeace

Good news: APP to "protect and restore" 1 million hectares of forests
Blogpost by Zulfahmi - April 28, 2014

During the long campaign to break Asia Pulp & Paper's (APP) deforestation habit there are some headlines I thought I would never get to write. But the above headline, like the news last year that APP would commit to 'No Deforestation', is definitely one of those.

Over a period of ten years of campaigning APP became the posterchild of everything that was wrong in forest management, its name synonymous with Indonesian forest destruction and a large dose of greenwash.

Stop Deforestation in Indonesia

  • signatures: 759
  • signature goal: 1,000
  • Target: President of Indonesia, Mr. Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono and Government Officials of Indonesia
  • Sponsored by: Cal Mendelsohn

Recent official figures show more than half of Indonesia's rainforest, the third-largest swath in the world, has been felled in a few years and permission has been granted to convert up to 70 per cent of what remains into palm or acacia plantations. Thirty years ago the world's third-and sixth-largest islands were full of tigers, elephants, rhinos, orangutans and exotic birds and plants but they have been effectively trashed in a single generation by global agribusiness and pulp and paper industries.

Indonesian Govnerment efforts to control this destruction have been ineffective. Acording to a recnt artcle in the New Zealand Herald, "Despite a commitment from the Government to extend a moratorium on deforestation for two years, Indonesia is still cutting down its forests faster than any other country. Loopholes in the law mean the moratorium only covers new licences and primary forests, and excludes key peatland areas and existing concessions which are tiger and elephant habitat... more
