Petitioning: Indonesian Forestry Minister Hasan; Hariyanto Lim – CEO of the BGA Group
 
 
 

Bumitama Gunajaya Agro (BGA) is a palm oil company that recently announced its plans to to clear large areas of rainforest located in Tanjung Putting National Park, Indonesia, to spur production of palm oil.

The Borneo Nationa Park covers over 400, 000 hectares and home to one of the most varied ecosystems in the world.

Bumitama Gunajaya Agro (BGA), a palm oil company, is clearing large areas of rainforest in Tanjung Puting National Park and the adjacent buffer zone in order to convert the land into oil palm monocultures.

Destroying the forest and endangering these animals (orangutans and the highly endangered proboscis monkeys)  violates countless laws. For instance, in 2011 Indonesia imposed a moratorium on the deforestation of the country’s natural parks. The company has yet to provide an environmental impact report and is believed to have obtained the necessary permits by bribing local authorities. In additional, the new plantation will affect the indigenous’ people way of life.

BGA has no right to do this! Act now and don’t let this beautiful landscape and all the wildlife disappear!
