Shoot: Forests and Forest Defenders Camp in Indonesia

GP02DPC
Photographs taken by Greenpeace paramotors as they launch an ongoing aerial initiative to spot forest and peat fires in an oil palm plantation. The paramotors were launched from the Greenpeace Forest Defenders Camp which opened on the 9th October as part of the organisations campaign to stop
forest and peatland destruction caused in part by oil palm plantations. The destruction is causing massive amounts of biodiversity loss and releasing huge amounts of greenhouse gasses to the atmosphere.
In the short-term, prior to the December 2007 Kyoto Protocol meeting in Bali, Greenpeace is calling on the Indonesian government to commit to a moratorium on conversion and destruction of Indonesian peatland.
Deforestation accounts for approximately one-fifth of global greenhouse gas
emissions.
