COP realises the absolute vital importance of protecting rainforest – home for the orangutans and many other species of wildlife. As far as we know we are the only organisation in Indonesia out there every day investigating and reporting forest crimes.

Our work takes us all over Kalimantan (Indonesia Borneo), documenting the devastation to forests caused particularly by oil palm companies. Some of what we observe is ‘legal’, but wrong. A lot of what we see is definitely illegal and we do our best to stop it.


We regularly file reports with our government and hold protests in Jakarta to raise awareness of the problems. Because of what we do, we make ourselves very unpopular with the government and even some conservation organisations who prefer to remain friends with those who tear down our forest and kill orangutans.

What follows are a series of photos we have taken of deforestation taking place in Kalimantan.
