Greenpeace sets up forest defenders’ camp
Environmental activist group Greenpeace said on Tuesday it has set up a forest defenders camp (FDC) in Indonesia`s Riau province as part of efforts to prevent deforestation which produces carbon dioxide emissions that contribute to global warming.

The FDC would cooperate with local people in conserving forests, Emmy Hafild, Greenpeace executive director for Southeast Asia, said Tuesday.

The volunteers who worked for the FDC would get involved in a number of activities such as conducting surveillance, extinguishing forest fires, examining the depth of peatland and surveying biodiversity resources, she said.
