Illegal Forest Logging and Deforestation in Laos By Vietnamese

An iNGO called Environmental Investigation Agency last year (2011) did a revealing investigation into how Vietnamese companies (and those that support them) are taking logs from Laos over the border into Vietnam.  It's so incredibly sad to see Laos' natural resources be taken like this and for no benefit to Lao people.  Deforestation in Laos remains a big issue.

Laos is like a sanctuary as it's a country that's in the middle of Southeast Asia surrounded by huge populated countries.  Its forests remain one of the few refuges for animal life and the people who depend on them.
