Indonesia's peatlands and rainforests are being destroyed for pulp and paper products. Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), the pulp and paper arm of the Sinar Mas group, still relies on rainforest clearance in Sumatra to feed its mills. These forests are home to the endangered Sumatran tiger (only 400 estimated left in the wild), Sumatran elephants, Sumatran orangutans and a host of other wildlife and plants.
