SAVE THE CAMEROON RAINFOREST - STOP THE HERAKLES FARMS' PROJECT
A US company is planning to tear down a chunk of rainforest the size of 100,000 soccer fields for a palm oil project.
This particular area of forest is home to thousands of Cameroonian people who stand to lose thier land if the project goes ahead. It is also home to endangered wildlife like African forest elephants and the Nigeria-Cameroon chimpanzee subspecies. http://www.greenpeace.org/international/en/getinvolved/Stop-Herakles-Farms-project/?ref=thingstodo
