Most of the rain forest in Kalimantan is disappearing to make room for palm oil plantations. The WWF supports this project, believing that its partner companies only produce “good” palm oil.

  1. This is not at all surprising. The same thing is going on right here in Tasmania, Australia. Tassal have recently received Aquaculture Stewardship Council Certification for their salmon farming practices in the Channel and WWF-Australia and Tassal formed a partnership in 2012 “focused on achieving ecologically sustainable aquaculture production, safeguarding valuable marine ecosystems and ensuring the long-term viability of seafood supply”. This is what we get in return, a significant decline in native and endemic species, foul algal blooms because of high nitrogen levels. I could go on. Our Fabebook site Tasmanian Aquaculture Reform Alliance has some more info

  2. WWF started the RSPO (Roundtable for Responsible Palm Oil) which is bad joke since oil palm is grown as a monoculture crop clearing huge tracts of forests and burning the area causing serious air pollution (haze in South East Asia). using a large amount of agri-chemicals that contaminate rivers, lakes and ponds in the surrounding area.
    Either WWF is blind to the notion of cradle-to-grave ecological footprints or it is as suggested a deal maker rather than a true conservation group
