"I love this article because Mongabay is THE resource for tropical biology and conservation news. And because we all wonder if reforestation efforts are effective - and this shows they are in more ways than we imagined."
- Kari Malen, Director of International Programs
"The article explains, clearly and simply, the carbon problem that Indonesia's peat fires present and how land use regulation and consumer purchasing decisions can positively impact the global issue."
- Bethany Kois, Grants Specialist
