Save the Aru Islands in Indonesia from being turned into a plantation

Recommended Posts

Aru is a cluster of 300 small tinny islands where greatest birds of paradise are living harmoniously with kangaroos, black cockatoos & crocodile. This heavenly place is threatened to be destroyed recently by a stupid & greedy plan of our government to develop 500 000 hectares of sugar cane plantation across this region. Please stand in solidarity with us to SAVE ARU ISLANDS by signing the Avaaz petition and supporting the movement:

In search for a homogeneous bulk commodity they are going to kill off the most valuable thing they have going. Diversity. If this was driven by the locals I would still hate it but the only thing you can do is try and educate them about alternatives. But this is long-distance government and corporations looking at some numbers on spreadsheets. Avatar all over again.
