110,000 premature deaths each year.
Forest and peat fires are burning across Indonesia, blanketing Southeast Asia in a choking haze.
Millions of people are forced to breathe thick smoke for weeks, resulting in an estimated 110,000 premature deaths from respiratory illness each year. The fires are raging through forests which are critical habitat for spectacular animals including tigers, orang-utans and elephants.
These fires are a man-made crisis, the result of decades of forest clearance and peatland drainage by plantation companies. The fires are also a symbol of the government’s failure to control the palm oil and pulp industries and to protect the natural environment.
