Disappearing rainforests, sumatran elephants and tigers in Indonesia

Just completed a research work on the state of destruction of rainforests in the Riau province of Indonesia. It's difficult to assess which is diappearing faster: the forests or Sumatran elephants? An immediate international attention and a check on irresponsibile behavior of multinational pulp and paper companies as well as oil palm plantation companies is required to conserve the exotic plant and wildlife of natural rainforests in Riau.
