Once considered the green lungs of Asia, Borneo now provides a lucrative home for palm oil growers and timber corporations.
According to the World Wildlife Fund, the rate of environmental destruction in Borneo is faster than in the Amazon.
In the second of a three-part series, Al Jazeera’s Tony Birtley investigates the role of politics in the growth of palm oil plantations and timber concessions.
