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. Donate at

How to Bring orangutan torture to President of Indonesia's urgent attention

The pictures inside this email show things that are happening to orangutans in Indonesia, things which should not happen to any creature, human or other. Don't be afraid to look. It can't hurt you.We humans need to be aware of what we as a species are responsible for and to make our leaders responsible too. Orangutans can be helped. This kind of thing does not have to go on. Not all Indonesians are callous. Like good Australians, good Indonesians want support and solidarity in the good fight for peace and harmony with the natural world. Let's help them and the orangutans by sending the letter inside this article.

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"

Biologist Willie Smits has found a way to re-grow clearcut rainforest in Borneo, save and house local orangutans, reverse climate change, stop forest fires and give sustainable income and justice to the locals. It all started because he rescued a baby orangatang from a rubbish heap...
We could do the same thing in Australia on all our degraded land. Only our government is stopping us.
