Palm oil companies continue their forest destruction.

These photos were taken last week in south-west Kalimantan by Hardi Baktiantoro.
As you can see the forest destruction continues apace, everywhere, despite claims by the President and Minister of Forestry that they would offer forests and orangutans more protection.

Last year they both said forest fires (set by palm oil companies) would be stopped. It is now very early on in the dry season and the fires have already been started again. It's business as ususal.
