The good and bad of Elaeis guineensis

Elaeis guineensis (Oil Palm, African Oil Palm, Kelapa Sawit)

Palm Oil is an edible vegetable oil that can be used to manufacture numerous products.

Unfortunately, the deforestation has destroyed large areas of verdant rainforest and exacerbated climate change and soil erosion.

Resident species like elephants, orang-utans, rhinos and tigers have lost their homes and some indigenous peoples are being forced off their land and robbed of their livelihoods.
