Orangutans And Deforestation

EDM number 1227 in 2012-13, proposed by Bob Russell on 20/03/2013.
Categorised under the topics of Animal welfare, Asia, Environmental protection and Forestry.

That this House is alarmed that the orangutans of Borneo and Sumatra are living with the threat of extinction due to their habitat loss; notes that there are only 6,600 individuals in Sumatra and 54,000 in Borneo and expresses its concern at the drastic reduction of the species; acknowledges that the illegal actions of loggers in Indonesia, which amounts to between 73 and 88 per cent of the logging in that country, is rapidly diminishing the indigenous landscape; understands that palm oil production companies have destroyed 6.5 million hectares of the rain forest, which is essential to the orangutan's survival; and therefore calls on the Government to make representations to the government of Indonesia.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
