World’s most-populous island

Java is one of the islands of the Greater Sunda Islands in Indonesia, bordered by the Indian Ocean to the south and the Java Sea on the north. With a population of over 148 million (Java only) or 152 million (including the inhabitants of its surrounding islands), Java constitutes over 55% percent of the Indonesian population.

hectares of rainforest

From 2003 – 2006, Java lost approximately 2,500 hectares a year. Despite the rate of loss being far lower in Java than other Indonesian islands (such as Borneo, Sumatra, and Sulawesi), Java is particularly threatened because there is so little forest left. If the past rate of deforestation occurs from 2007-2010 then by now only 10,000 hectares of rainforest will remain on the island, leaving a number of unique and endangered species in very deep trouble.
