This is breaking information has been revealed thanks to a field investigation conducted by Rainforest Action Network. We have discovered proof that the area known as the Tripa peatland in the Leuser Ecosystem is being systematically destroyed for cheap Conflict Palm Oil.
The video above is actual footage of Conflict Palm Oil excavators tearing down key orangutan habitat. Our investigation found that palm oil fruit produced by PT. Dua Perkasa Lestari, a controversial company that has been driving the destruction and burning of Tripa for years, was sold to a nearby mill that has supplied to palm oil giants Wilmar and Golden-Agri Resources (GAR).
We have already placed into motion a swift action plan targeting these key influential palm oil traders — the CEOs of both Wilmar and GAR — as well as encouraging the government of Indonesia to intervene. Our Palm Oil Action Team is in full swing, but this urgent crisis calls for extra measures — we need need to secure further research, campaign, and coordination funding to snuff out this crisis as soon as possible. We cannot let this critical habitat and carbon storage area be drained, bulldozed, and forever lost due to Conflict Palm Oil. Please make whatever possible tax-deductible donation today to secure the future of the Tripa peatland.
