Papua New Guinea  has the largest rain forestry in Asia Pacific. It is also where the largest land  grabbing is happening in modern history. From 2014 to 2016, Global Witness has tracked a supply chain of 9,000 miles  from rain forestry in PNG to retail stores in the United States.  Global wood trade has caused illegal deforestation, environmental degradation and invasion to the life of indigenous people in PNG.

She traced the footprint of woods from rain forestry and shared her story in tracking illegal wood trade in PNG.
