Urgent action needed to save Sumatran forest

25 April 2009

We draw supporters attention to the proposal by timber giant, Asia Pulp & Paper, to clear 33,776 hectares of forest in Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra, Indonesia.

Australian Orangutan Project (AOP) reports that this devastating proposal will severely endanger the 100 orangutans released in the park to date via the Bukit Tigapuluh Sumatran Orangutan Reintroduction Project – the only reintroduction site for this critically endangered species.

We encourage you to support AOP as it campaigns for this proposal to be withdrawn. A letter template and contact details are provided on AOP’s website at http://www.orangutan.org.au/writetoapp
