Forests of the Orangutan
Some of the last refuges of the orangutan are under threat. Peter Hadfield reports from the forests of Indonesia.
Some of the last refuges of the Orangutan are under threat. As food manufacturers demand more palm oil for their processed products so the pressure grows on the forests of Indonesia which contain some the last of the Orangutan and some of the world's densest reserves of carbon-capturing peat. Peter Hadfield travels to Borneo to witness the forest being cleared and the peat being destroyed.
