HORRIFIC ORANGUTAN STATS!!
YOU KNOW THE DRILL… PLEASE SHARE EVERYWHERE, FB, TWITTER, BLOG ETC
Palm oil is now the greatest threat to the survival of orangutans in the wild. Palm oil plantations in Indonesia and Malaysia are replacing bio-diverse rainforest at the rate of 300 football fields an hour, much of which is homed to endangered Bornean/critically endangered Sumatran orangutans. ONE ORANGUTAN DIES EVERY TWO HOURS as a result of deforestation for the development of… palm oil. The worst part is that this widely used vegetable oil is found in over 50% of products in our supermarkets, but often isn’t even labelled. Palm oil can be found in everything from confectionery, baked goods and cosmetics, to toothpastes, washing powders and cleaning agents.
You can help by writing to your local Member of Parliament and asking them what they are doing to help make the labelling of palm oil mandatory in Australia.
