EIA Forests Campaign - Latest report into the illegal logging of Siamese rosewood in the Mekong
Please find a link to our new report Routes of Extinction: The corruption and violence destroying Siamese Rosewood in the Mekong launched today in Bangkok.
You will find our press release, report, and a short film detailing the findings of EIA’s investigations into the Siamese Rosewood Trade in recent years. It reveals how crime, corruption, and ill-conceived government policies from Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and China are likely to result in the demise of Siamese Rosewood in the coming years unless significant reforms are made. We also document the social and very violent consequences of this illegal trade that is turning the forests of the Mekong into conflict zones.
