LATEST ILLEGAL LOGGING INVESTIGATION: US COMPANIES STILL EXPOSED IN THE AMAZON
While following up on this past October’s illegal logging investigation, Night Terrors, in which activists, with covertly-placed GPS devices, tracked the movements of trucks carrying illegal timber, Greenpeace has discovered that a large private forest estate, Santa Efigenia, had flooded the market with large amounts of laundered illegal timber. This one property had sold up to 18 million board feet of timber, including 5.1 million board feet of the trendy construction material ipê which would be worth around 7 million USD in the decking market.

Fourteen Greenpeace activists were taken into custody by the U.S. Coast Guard trying to stop it. Their plan was to stay out on the water as long as possible—and that’s exactly what they did.
While Shell has left for the Arctic—and could begin drilling in roughly two weeks—this fight is nowhere near over. People power has made Arctic drilling a front page news story across the world, and Shell’s public image is crumbling by the day. It’s a story that can only build if we keep pushing it.

Today Indonesia’s second largest pulp and paper producer agreed to turn off the bulldozers and protect the forest and high carbon peatlands and begin respecting the rights of local communities. This is a major breakthrough and we commend APRIL and parent company the Royal Golden Eagle Group for taking this step.
As recently as 4 months ago, Greenpeace released new images and video exposing the dramatic destruction of natural rainforests happening at the hands of APRIL and the Royal Golden Eagle Group. This heartbreaking lose of forests was paired with the draining of high carbon peatlands which causes significant greenhouse gas emissions and an increased risk for forest fires. APRIL also has a history of significant conflict with local communities in a number of its concessions.
Of course the story does not end with today’s announcement. APRIL has made and broken promises like this before, so Greenpeace will be watching very closely.
