About this product

Asia's Disappearing Green Heart takes us on a journey to Borneo, the third largest island in the world. As well as orangutans, proboscis monkeys, orchids and other biodiversity, it exposes the impact that global demand for palm oil, wood-pulp, timber and coal is having on the people and wildlife of this extraordinary region.

This is the third in a trilogy of films about tropical forests and the people and wildlife who depend on them, by independent filmmaker Steve Taylor. Tropical rainforests are home to more than half the world's species and play a crucial role in maintaining the health of our planet. Steve Taylor has travelled across Africa, Amazonia and Borneo to explore first-hand the complex issues of deforestation. Gorillas in Africa, river dolphins in Peru, orangutans in Borneo all feature, along with forest-dwelling people--the traditional custodians of the forest.
