Sumatran Forest

The Sumatran rainforest is one of the last major areas of jungle left in the world. However, it is being destroyed at an unprecedented rate, with much of the forest being cleared in order to make space for palm oil plantations. This produces tonnes of carbon emissions and threatens to kill many of the Earth's most precious and exotic creatures.
