Greenpeace Forest Crime Unit halted work at Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum on 6 Sep 2004 for apparently using merbau in its refurbishment, demanding that it be replaced with timber certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) as being from legal and sustainable sources. Greenpeace researchers had uncovered contractors using merbau timber from Southeast Asian rainforests, home to several endangered species including the orangutan. Glasgow Council officials ordered contractors to stop work replacing hardwood floors during the Lottery funded refurbishment of Kelvingrove art gallery and museum, after nearly 100 Greenpeace activists invaded the site to expose the use of endangered rainforest timber.
