Camera Catches Bulldozer Destroying Sumatra Tiger Forest

A video camera trap installed by WWF and partners has captured footage linking the destruction of a crucial Sumatran tiger forest to the expansion of palm oil plantations in Indonesia’s Riau Province.

The film was taken at Bukit Batabuh which was classified as a protected area by Riau Province in 1994 and categorized as a limited production forest based on Indonesia’s 1986 Land Use Consensus, meaning no company can legally exploit the forest.
