Illegal Logging and Road Construction for Palm Oil Pushing Endangered Species to Extinction in the Leuser Ecosystem
Newly collected evidence by Rainforest Action Network field teams exposes that rampant logging, land clearance and road construction for oil palm plantations is leaving endangered Sumatran orangutans fighting for life in isolated forest patches in a region known as the ‘orangutan capital of the world.’ Despite repeated exposés chronicling the controversial practices of both palm oil companies named here, to date, among major palm oil buyers, only Unilever has announced that both companies are on its suspended supplier list. Nestlé, Mars and Mondelēz have failed to publicly respond or issue lists of their suspended suppliers in the Leuser Ecosystem.

Colgate-Palmolive, Nestlé, Mondelēz, Unilever, and financiers exposed for links to deforestation in the Leuser Ecosystem.
Indonesia’s Leuser Ecosystem is a shining example of why we need to Keep Forests Standing. It is like no other place in the world; the last place on Earth where Sumatran orangutans, elephants, tigers, rhinos, and sun bears still roam the same habitat. But the survival of the Leuser Ecosystem is at a crossroads. The brands and banks responsible for fueling the destruction of this biodiversity hotspot are global companies with global customers, which is why we need your help to pressure them to take action.
Home to half of the world’s biodiversity, rainforests impact all life on Earth. They provide the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. Rainforests are also our best defense against climate chaos. That makes them the most priceless places on Earth.
