Protection of the Mulu rainforest
Sarawak's only UNESCO World Heritage Site is threatened by oil palm plantations! In the immediate vicinity of the Mulu National Park in Sarawak, an area of 4400 hectares is currently being converted into palm oil monocultures.
The affected indigenous Berawan and Penan communities were not consulted and oppose the project that will destroy their forest and livelihoods.
Radiant Lagoon, a Malaysian palm oil company, is rapidly encroaching into the Mulu rainforest. However, it is not too late to stop this environmental disaster! If we act now, the forest of the Berawan and Penan can still be saved.
Not only the Mulu rainforest is under threat. Oil palm plantations are still spreading at an incredible rate! Despite Malaysian government promises, rainforest is being logged for the production of palm oil on a daily basis. This fundamentally contradicts the Malaysian government's and the late Sarawak Chief Minister Adenan Satem's promise to stop the expansion of oil palm monocultures.
With the petition, we call for a moratorium on new oil palm plantations and for an immediate halt to logging in the Mulu National Park region. Please sign the petition now!
