Top 10 countries with Threatened Species

Signs pointing to the fact that a global climate change is happening increase every day. Shall I tell you how massively furious I am about the sad, sad deforestation of my birthplace, Sumatra? Massive jungles used to cover the land everywhere, lush and green and soaring high, but when I showed my husband the land where cars used to stop to allow tigers and the cubs to pass in my childhood, the trees were no more. We traveled from the south to the north of the island, and the only forests left seemed to be the ones deep down inside the canyons where bulldozers couldn’t go.

Indonesia and neighbours. Indonesia consists of several large islands and thousands of isles. Sumatra is world's 6th largest island. Borneo (aka Kalimantan and shared with Malaysia and Brunei) is world's 3rd largest island. And Papua is world's second largest island   (after Greenland). You will notice that Bali is very small, and so is  West Timor, compared to the other parts of Indonesia. This is where very, very good people live, but the greedy ones have turned the country to be environmentally depressing.

This is a heads up about my work-in-progress, Heart of Borneo,  as I’m very passionate about environmental issues and would love to contribute in raising environmental awareness.

I hope to release Heart of Borneo in 2014. For now, let me just say that I’m deeply saddened that my home Australia, one of the world’s developed countries, made the above list. Mr Prime Minister of Australia, please, please, please stop that plan to build a new coal port in Queensland. You will be dumping over 3 million cubic metres of dredge spoil on corals and reef water of The Great Barrier Reef, our world heritage. Your descendants will not forgive you, just like I will never forgive the people who have bulldozed my forests in Sumatra.

And readers, may I call you to please do your part in saving the environment. Thank you.
