SOS carved into palm oil plantation to highlight impact on Indonesia's people and wildlife

A Lithuanian artist has carved a giant SOS message into an Indonesian palm oil plantation to draw attention to the damage done by
deforestation and highlight the impact on people and wildlife.

Ernest Zacharevic curated the Save our Souls project as part of a campaign on the impact palm oil plantations have on tribal communities
and endangered species such as the orangutan.

"We, as consumers, are so detached from the source of our commodities that we are no longer able to see the consequences of our daily
choices," Zacharevic said.

"I wanted to communicate the magnitude of the problem."
The giant SOS carving, which he completed last month, runs for about half a kilometre inside a plantation in North Sumatra, and can be
seen from the air.
The land will be replanted with native tree species, he said.

Save our Soul is an art land initiative that has been carved into a palm oil plantation in North Sumatra.

PepsiCo and British cosmetics firm Lush have committed to ending the use of palm oil, which is found in products from soap to cereal or at
least ensure their supply is ethical.

Last month, consumer goods giant Unilever said it had laid bare its palm oil supply chain to boost transparency.
