Thema Forests

Milieudefensie fights deforestation in two ways. We support the people living in the rainforests in their struggle with palm oil companies. We try to decrease the demand for palm oil in the Netherlands and Europe. To achieve this, we are building a movement against deforestation. Get on board!
