We have got to stop deforestation worldwide. We have enough land devoted to crops and there are many alternatives to palmm oil!

very probably, and for Earth('s living communities) much fortunately, humans will go extinct BEFORE felling the last trees. Cutting the branch we are sitting on -- with oh so mightyly strong powertools, we deserve no better.

And, of course.....it's not just TREES being destroyed! The extremely rare drill and mandrill baboon live in those forests....and when loggers are finished, hunters move in.

This is deeply disgusting!

Thinking long term instead of short term profits, the ecosystem is priceless.

when will man stop destroying the forests of the world and bringing the earth
towards extinction closer What is wrong with the people on this planet Dont they have any brains and know that they are destroying the oxygen on this earth the native species of these countries and helping to create global warming They dont think it will affect them because they probably wont live long enough to see the destruction but what about their selfishness in not caring about future generations Tell these morons to stop the logging now and help save this planet and its creatures All they care about is money
