A few months back I traveled to Sarawak Malaysia to work on ‘Destruction, Witnessed, Logged & Going Viral’ a story on how NGO Global Witness exposes the economic networks behind conflict, corruption and environmental destruction for Wired UK.
The mission was to follow two Global Witness investigators as they continue to document the devastating destruction of the Sarawak rain forest at the hands of corrupt logging conglomerates who have little if no regard for the impact on the environment and the local people.
The trip had an enormous effect personally. Nothing like being on the ground to see how we are mistreating the planet and each other. Truly humbling, maddening, heart breaking and thought provoking.
