The Loss of Our Forest and Peatland

This report found forest and peatland have been converted and burnt from 2016-18 to make way for oil palm plantations in Tangkiling and Marang, Bukit Batu sub-district in Palangkaraya municipality, one of the management units of Sebangau National Park. It further found illegal logging inside the park, with the timber allegedly used to supply local timber industries in Central Kalimantan.

Satellite image analysis shows 19,000 hectares in Sebangau National Park were burnt in 2015, the same location where more than half of the hotspots in all national parks in Indonesia in the same year were found. The cause is believed to be land clearing for oil palm plantations and farmland.
