The Orang Rimba (or Kubu) indigenous people have seen their forest destroyed and now live under the barren shadow of Eucalyptus plantations of the Sinar Mas company near the village of Lubuk Mandar Syah. Eucalyptus is used to produce pulp and paper. There are still some natural forests in the area where the Orang Rimba hunt and collect products, but the Sinar Mas is planning to convert them to more plantations.Locations:Indonesia-Jambi-Southeast Asia-SumatraDate:10 Jul, 2009Credit:© Daniel Beltrá / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Day-Eucalyptus-Forests (campaign title)-Forests (topography)-Indigenous People-KWCI (GPI)-Men-One person-Outdoors-Plantations-Sinar Mas Group-TreesShoot:Forests Documentation in Kalimantan and SumatraA documentation from flights over Kalimantan and Sumatra shows the destruction caused by the expansion of oil palm and Eucalyptus plantations and coal mining in what used to be pristine forests. The consequences of the land clearance cause climate change and are devastating for the wildlife in the area, including orangutans who are dramatically threatened by the lost of their natural habitat.
