Expanding Rubber Plantations 'Catastrophic' for Endangered Species in Southeast Asia

22 hours ago − University of East Anglia
Demand for natural rubber fuelled by the tyre industry is threatening protected parts of Southeast Asia - according to research from the University of East Anglia (UEA). A new study published today predicts that up to 8.5 million hectares of additional rubber plantations will be required to meet demand by 2024. But expansion on this scale will have 'catastrophic' biodiversity impacts, with globally threatened unique species and…
