Save Singapore’s Forest Reserves; Our Natural Heritage

[A petition to save Singapore’s Forest Reserves]

“Development in this forest … in turn destroy unique micro-habitats created by forest streams, killing off native forest frogs, freshwater turtles, freshwater fishes and crustaceans that can only live here…

If we allow the Cross Island MRT line to pass over or under our rainforest, it will be to our disgrace”

APP and APRIL: Indonesia’s Leaders in Climate and Rainforest Destruction | Rainforest Action Network

Sometimes, our actions can bite us back. APRIL and APP, two of the largest paper mills globally, have contributed to the clearance of forests (of which one method is slash&burn) in Sumatra – LEADING TO HAZE.

Which we can directly change – use less paper.
