The Sumatran rainforest is a profoundly awful story of deforestation. The 6th biggest island on the planet was once secured with thick wilderness across the nation. Presently, just pockets of rainforest remain, to a great extent inside the UNESCO secured Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra. Unlawful logging and palm oil creation are primarily to the fault.
With practically half of Sumatra’s tropical rainforest lost over the most recent 35 years, the probability is that outside these secured regions all residual rainforest in Sumatra will
vanish inside 20 years. Tigers, rhinos, orangutans and elephants are all extremely in danger.
The Tropical Rainforest Heritage of Sumatra is spread over the national parks of Gunung Leuser, Kerinci Seblat and Bukit Barisan. Between them, they hold the island’s keep going trust in the long haul protection of its shifted vegetation and heap jeopardized species.
