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.
