Peatland dwellers
Greenpeace is conducting an assessment and mapping of the Kampar Peninsular, using satellite imagery and aerial photography, to develop a rehabilitation plan for peatlands already degraded and drained by palm oil and pulp and paper companies. The Kampar Peninsula is the last large intact area of peat swamp forest in Riau with some of the deepest peat in Indonesia, the rest has been destroyed by the agriculture and logging industries. In the photo: fires at RAPP concession Kampar Penisular, Giam Siak Kecil.
