Timbernews started in 2011 with covering the latest news about the wrongdoings in the Malaysian timber business. Shortly after that, we discovered that many of these wrongdoings are not exclusive for Malaysia, but apply to the entire timber business. That's why we started focusing on timber exporting countries like Brasil, DRC, Indonesia, Vietnam, Laos, Peru, etcetera. Timbernews is non-profit, independent and without any prejudice. Via social media we aim to raise awareness about the environment, deforestation, wildlife, sustainability and illegal logging related to timber exporting countries. We promote respect for wildlife and environment.
