PNG rainforest 'in grave danger'

Date : 1st March 2006, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The natural forests of Papua New Guinea are in danger of being wiped out because of illegal logging, according to a conservation organisation. Forest Trends said foreign logging firms were violating laws intended to promote sustainable forestry, and the PNG government was not enforcing them. The country has one of the world's most extensive natural rainforest ranges. Most evidence is drawn from reports commissioned and published by Papua's government with World Bank support. But Forest Trends says they have never been pulled together into a single body of work, nor have they been acted on.
