Palm Oil as an increasing threat to our rainforests because of illegal logging. Because this plant can only be grown in tropical environments, rainforests are cut down to make room for plantations. Once a plantation needs more room or has lost the nutrition in the soil, more forest is destroyed to make more plantations.
llegal logging methods include the slash and burn method of clearing rainforest. This is the act of purposefully setting an uncontrolled fire to part of the forest. They do not take account the animals in that area of forest. The orangutan is one of the severely affected species by this. There are only predicted to be about 30,000 left in the wild and they are also only found in rainforest habitats. Orangutans are already on the endangered list like many other rainforest species. There are also many other undiscovered species we are losing due to this logging.
