PAPER/PRODUCT IMPORTERS FROM ASIA PULP & PAPER
BARNS & NOBLE
The Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) which was classified in 2008 by the IUCN as critically endangered with a population rate projected to be 441 to 679 individuals, with no subpopulation having an effective population size larger than 50 individuals is now in great danger of extinction within the next 2-3 years if action is not taken with immediate effect.
Illegal logging and palm oil plantations that comes from the tree (Elaeis guineensis Jacq) are killing the Sumatran Tiger off with now with great effect.
(Eka Tjipta Widjaja) the founder of Asia Pulp and Paper that is also part of the Sinar Mas group have no respect for the endangered Sumatran tiger that is being wiped of the face of the earth by high consumer demand for paper palm oil & food products.
Asia Pulp & Paper are one of the largest pulp and paper companies in the world, that supply paper to National Geo-Graphic, Xerox, and Wallmart. National Geo- Graphic and more. We would of thought National Geo not to be involved with such a mass supplier as of there love for the environment. Sadly though Greenpeace's investigations have proved otherwise as well as exsposing more companies that know to well where their paper, food and furniture products are coming from.
Greenpeace investigations that lasted one year showed that (APP) are logging the protected tree Ramin (Gonystylus spp) a tropical hard wood tree species and pulping peat swamp land and forests that belong to the Sumatran Tiger. The Ramin tree has a protection order on it that was put in place by the Indonesian government in 2001 along with the UN convention that controls the Ivory trade. Along with that the endangered Sumatran Tiger is also protected under (Cites) law that forbids anyone from harming, endangering its habitat or killing the tiger.
These two key issues though are still being explotated by (APP) that is still illegaly harvesting the Ramin tree and damaging the peat land swamp in which the endangered Sumatran Tiger lives in.
Asia Pulp and Paper though are claiming they do not under no circumstances logg the Ramin tree, however the video shows the proof. Thosands of logs are stored at Indonesians APP mill that have Ramin mixed in with them. Taking these tress away that are protected under Indonesian law is killing the Sumatran Tiger and if action is not taken then we will see them gone along with the Ramin tree.
APP supplies paper to countries world wide, coffee table books, packaging for products such as ACER, MICROSOFT, TOILET AND KITCHEN PAPERS and many more companies that rely on paper to use in everday day items.
The consumer is unaware mostly as they never check where there packaging has been made or originates from. We ask now that all consumers please check your suppliers of printer paper, photograph paper, books, food products and many more products before purchasing products that originate from APP (Asian Pulp & Paper) if you dont and you continue to buy these products then your contributing to the deaths of the remaining Sumatran Tiger along with the Forests that hold the protected Ramin Tree, in which these graceful Tigers live in.
APP'S TRADE IS DRIVING THE SUMATRAN TIGERS CLOSER TO EXTINCTION
TAKE ACTION NOW BEFORE IT IS TO LATE.
Please use the following text below to show your retailer or supplier that importing any products from APP is killing the Sumatran Tiger and Rain Forests.
"Indonesia’s ramin is legally protected from logging and domestic and international trade. Used to make products such as furniture, toys and decorative mouldings, ramin is facing a ‘high risk of extinction in the wild in the medium-term future’. In Indonesia, extensive areas of peat swamp forest – a key ramin habitat – have been cleared since 2001, driving ramin and other CITES-listed wildlife such as Sumatran tigers closer to extinction. Virtually all trade in products derived from Indonesian ramin is illegal"
