A view of a hanging bridge leading into Cameroon's Korup National Park June 9, 2012. Expanding markets from Nigeria to China are fuelling a voracious appetite for more food. A big part of that demand will have to be met by palm oil, a low-cost fat coveted by food manufacturers and a mainstay of cooking across the tropics. Since 2000, world demand for palm oil has doubled. Picture taken June 9, 2012.
