Illegal logging and road building threatens tigers and tribes of the Heart of Sumatra

Date : 8th January 2008, Source : ENN

The investigation, by WWF Indonesia and other scientific and conservation groups, also found the crucial Bukit Tigapuluh Forest Landscape threatened by illegal logging, clearing for plantations and other roadbuilding — much of it linked to operations of Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) and its partners.
