Jakarta to crack down on loggers

Date : 2nd July 2004, Source : BBC Link to News Story



The BBC reports on how the Indonesian Government is tackling the smoke haze that regularly affects the south east Asian region.

As the rainforests are naturally moist and damp, when trees are cut down and the forest thinned, the ecosystem becomes drier and tinderbox, leading to fires.
