This is such a tragic, heartbreaking and maddening story. Weeks ago, the Ecologist Film Unit, accompanied by the NGO Elephant Family, was documenting the "environmental genocide" going on in Sumatra, that is, the disappearing rainforest in the (once) wilds of Aceh Province, Sumatra, and how that rainforest depletion is killing off all the great biodiversity and critically endangered species who inhabit it, like the Sumatran elephant.
Palm oilers, In cruelty and profit You revel. To those of us In the kind world, You are tools of The devil.
