The rainforests of Borneo, home to Orangutans and countless other species, are being threatened by rampant deforestation. Since 1973, Borneo has lost 1/3 of its rainforests, with no signs of slowing down. In the 1 minute it takes to read this post, forest the size of a football field has been destroyed.
