Mad and concerned about what criminals do to the worlds forests🌳. Interpol, the international police authority just published this:⁠

“The illegal timber industry accounts for up to 90% of tropical deforestation in some countries and attracts the world’s biggest organized crime groups,” the agency said Monday in a statement.⁠

It also warned that such crime causes “serious economic, environmental and social damage and fuels conflict in forest regions where criminal gangs compete for available markets.”⁠

According to the international law enforcement agency, even when deforestation is conducted by legitimate entities, crime and corruption exists at almost every step of the process.⁠

Help me to keep our beautiful passion of making music away from crime and nature destruction. Do not buy music instruments containing tropical timber. It is too risky. Thank you. ⁠
