Photos of Indonesia: Sumatra
Sumatra (also spelled Sumatara and Sumatera) is the sixth largest island of the world and the largest island of Indonesia. Most of Sumatra used to be covered by tropical rainforest, home to species such as orangutans, tapirs, and Sumatran tigers, and some unique plants like the Rafflesia. Unfortunately, economic development coupled with corruption and illegal logging has severely threatened its existence. Conservation areas have not been spared from destruction, either.
