Too terrible to ignore - the cruelty that palm oil crops cause orangutans in Indonesia

If you have a heart please don't ignore this post - we need to let the whole world know what's happening. Boycott palm oil products now. Please donate to the campaign. Because of forest clearing for palm oil, in just the last 20 years 90% of orangutan habitat has already been destroyed. If deforestation continues at this pace, orangutans could be extinct in the wild as early as 2015, and their jungle habitat could be completely gone in 20 years from now.

Palm oil - the killer oil


An estimated 40% of food on our supermarket shelves contains palm oil. Palm oil typically costs the lives of up to 50 Orang-utans each week. Possible extinction in 20 years.
Over 85% of the world's palm oil comes from Malaysia and Indonesia. See also, for some hope, "Restoring Eden"
