Sumatra [electronic resource]: Paper Tiger-a Deforestation Crisis

ABC International
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Having witnessed land-clearing firsthand in Africa and South America, tropical biologist Bill Laurance thought he had seen everything-the worst that deforestation has to offer. But, as he explains in this eye-opening program, what has been allowed to happen on the Indonesian island of Sumatra amounts to "ecological Armageddon." In addition to Laurance's testimonial on the size and scale of forest removal, viewers also learn about aggressive land-acquisition tactics used by palm oil and paper-producing corporations and the impact on local communities dependent on small-scale agriculture. The fate of endangered species such as the Sumatran tiger is also discussed in the context of extreme, and potentially irreversible, habitat destruction.
