The issue The issues and challenges connected with sustaining the jungles of Southeast Asia might seem to be enormous and insurmountable and so they are. Put simply, we all need to better recognise the incredible value and worth of the regionís tropical jungles and figure out what we might do to help ensure they are acknowledged and safeguarded. The plants and animals that call these jungles home also need to be carefully sustained for their own and our sake. There is no doubt that the jungles of Southeast Asia are under serious threat from large-scale land conversion, unsustainable and insensitive logging, fragmentation and loss of biodiversity, along with social and cultural degradation.
