Father and Daughter Duo attack war on deforestation
Organized by: Danielle Lusk
Why? Deforestation in the amazon. Oil palm grows best in low-lying, wet, tropical areas – which is also where rainforests occur. As palm oil production expands to meet increasing demand, more rainforests are cleared in places like Indonesia, Malaysia and beyond to make way for oil palm plantations.Fact on the accumulated amazon forest loss. 750,000 km2 has been deforested in the amazon since 1978. 268,021 km2 whole of NZ. The South Island covers 150,437 square kilometres. NZ is beautiful, lets keep it that way.
