road to extinction

blog_illl126-18

harapan熱帶雨林是地球上其中一個主要的生態地區,但現在竟考慮在這珍貴的雨林中間建一條道路。這雨林住了超過300種鳥類,更是蘇門答臘虎、大象、熊和犀牛等瀕危動物的家。這50米寬的道路將會更方便煤炭從蘇門答臘島的5個煤礦運出,卻會把154公頃的雨林清除,嚴重破壞生態!這條道路亦會令雨林更容易進入,助長非法獵殺和砍木!希望印尼政府不會批准這項會把這些珍貴動物和生態趕絕的建設吧!

the harapan rainforest is one of the biodiversity hotspots, and now they are proposing a build a road in the middle of this treasured land. this rainforest is home of over 300 species of birds and many endangered animals like Sumatran tigers, elephants, bears and rhinos. the 50 meter wide road will be used to easier transport coal from five mines in Sumatra, but building this road will be clearing 154 hectares of the rainforest! this road would also allow illegal hunter and logger to easier access the forest! hopefully the indonesian government would not approve this construction that would bring our animals and plants to extinction.
