These forests are being felled by Turama Forest Industries - a group company of Malayasian logging giant Rimbunan Hijau. In 1995, the Papua New Guinea government granted 1.7 million hectares as a logging ‘extension’ to Turama Forest Industries – the extension was almost 10 times bigger than the original concession. The timber permit for this new concession, called Turama Extension is valid for 35 years (until 2030).Locations:Oceania-Papua New GuineaDate:3 Sep, 2008Credit:© Greenpeace / Jeremy Sutton-HibbertMaximum size:3888px X 2592pxKeywords:Children-Day-Forests (campaign title)-Indigenous People-KWCI (GPI)-Outdoors-Rainforests-Small group of peopleShoot:Deforestation Documentation Papua New GuineaThe Greenpeace ship Esperanza arrived in Jakarta to help launch the Forests for Climate initiative, Greenpeace’s pioneering solution to reduce deforestation, tackle climate change, preserve global biodiversity, and protect the livelihoods of millions of forest-dependent people. Forests for Climate (FFC) is Greenpeace’s landmark proposal for an international mechanism to fund sustainable and lasting reductions of emissions from tropical deforestation in participating countries in order to meet commitments for the second phase of the Kyoto Protocol.Greenpeace is calling on the Indonesian government to implement an immediate moratorium on all forest conversion, including expansion of oil palm plantations, industrial logging, and other drivers of deforestation.
