Indonesia's Forest Fires Threaten Orangutan Habitat

Shocking drone footage captured by Greenpeace field researchers shows extensive peat and forest fires burning in Indonesia. Greenpeace’s footage was shot around the edge of the Gunung Palung national park, a major reservoir of biodiversity in Indonesia. It shows fires burning in the deep peat surrounding the national park and in nearby palm oil concessions – the result of decades of illegal logging and deforestation for oil palm and pulp plantations.

Indepth information can be found in this Greenpeace report.
