About the Webinar
Indonesia is not only home to diverse species of plants and animals including the endangered Sumatran tiger of which there are only 400 remaining, but its carbon-rich peatlands are also critical to millions of Indonesians.
In this episode of the Greenpeace Roadshow, Dr. Amy Moas, Greenpeace Forests Campaigner leads an interactive discussion on Greenpeace’s work to save the Paradise Forests of Indonesia. Amy is an expert on the plight of Indonesia’s Paradise Forests – home to Sumatran tigers, orangutans, and tree kangaroos – and a champion for Greenpeace’s campaign to stop forest destruction for palm oil.
