Asia: Species Endangered by Palm Oil Deforestation

Sun Bear Helarctos malayanus euryspilus

These unique and beautiful creatures face a threat to their very existence from the replacement of their rainforest home with oil palm plantations in Northern and South East Asia. These lush and fertile forests harbour an immense range of biodiversity not found anywhere on the planet. Thinking, feeling, intelligent beings that love their children and just want to survive and have their animal communities left in peace. Hot spots for palm oil deforestation include: Borneo, Sumatra, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Burma, Thailand, Brunei, The Philippines, Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka. These animals have a IUCN Red List status of Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable and are declining. Yet there is hope and there are a number of ways you can Take Action to Protect Them.

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, scientists, conservationists, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail and industrial agriculture sectors and through strong campaigning we can stop them cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join the #Boycott4Wildlife and stand up for the animals with your supermarket choices

    1. Hello dear friend, you could say that, but also you could say that we’re fighting right until the bitter end – one way or another. If the world will end, at least we will go down fighting! I remain optimistic that together we can have a positive impact with our campaigning, you and I and all of the others make a powerful team, stay strong xx
