"Palm oil is totally destructive. They're cutting down every single tree", complains Lone Droescher-Nieslen from the Orangutan Survival Foundation. On visiting the decimated forests of the Sumatran jungle, the problem she faces is clear to see. Although she hopes to rehabilitate "traumatised" apes back into the wild, if the present rate of deforestation continues, there may be no forests to release them into.
