(FILES) This file photograph taken on June 7, 2012 shows the boundary between the remaining rainforest and newly developed palm oil plantation over cleared tropical forest land in Central Kalimantan province on Indonesia’s Borneo island. Indonesia has extended a logging ban aimed at protecting rainforest despite fierce industry pressure, the government said on May 15, 2013, although green groups say the move still does not go far enough. Vast tracts of the sprawling Indonesian archipelago are covered in trees, including some of the world’s most biodiverse tropical rainforest that is home to endangered animals such as orangutans, tigers and elephants.
