When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
We need to act fast to save the Sumatran rainforest and the species that depends on this habitat for their survival.
Please art now to prevent the destruction of 1. 2 million hectares of some of the most bio diverse rainforest in the world, replacing them with gold mines, oil palm plantations, logging, and roads.
It is more shocking then you can imagine as a local Sumatran Governor “…wants to let mining and palm oil companies move in to decimate areas the size of a million football fields!”
Astounding as this may seem in our more environmentally aware society the national Forestry Ministry of Sumatra may allow this to happen.
The forests under threat are the only place on Earth where orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos co-exist – and all are critically endangered. If these plans go ahead it is predicted that in ten to twenty years these species will be extinct.

The greed of the few will destroy the many. The only way to save this pristine forest is if we act now. Please sign the petition
