Stop Forests For Sale!

Amelia, Spokesperson, Rimba Disclosure Project

14-Feb-22 15:00

Stop Forests For Sale!

In 2021, investigations by the Rimba Disclosure Project identified and verified 43,539 hectares of forested land supposedly for sale, based on 28 listings on various e-commerce websites. These listings include land within forest reserves, Central Forest Spine habitat linkages, and indigenous customary land, in the states of Perak, Selangor, Pahang, Terengganu and Kelantan. We speak to *Amelia, a spokesperson for the Rimba Disclosure Project to discuss the findings of their investigations, and ask what they are demanding from authorities, in relation to these revelations. The Rimba Disclosure Project is led by a group of anonymous activists, and the group is described as "an independent, non-political initiative providing transparency on those responsible for the loss of Malaysia’s rainforests."

*Name has been changed to protect their privacy.
