Palm Oil

While palm oil is in the news, take a look at this picture which I took in Cameroon: Looks like pretty impressive rain forest, yes? Well actually on the left it is, it's the Korup National Park. But on the right there's the start of a huge palm oil plantation. You can see it in this image from Google Earth which shows the bridge the photo was taken from: There were forest elephants, monkeys and all sorts of birds in the rain forest. In the palm oil plantation I think you'd struggle to find any animals at all, except perhaps for insects. Very sad, but I don't know what the solution is. At least the national park is protected.
