Orangutans, tigers, many other species and, not the least, indigenous peoples and their cultures are being bulldozed out of existence. Every hour 300 football fields of precious remaining forest is lost in Malaysia and Indonesia to make way for palm oil plantations.
Palm Oil Resistance Facts:
Almost 80% of orangutan habitat has disappeared in the last 20 years.
We are losing over 6,000 orangutans a year. There are now only 400 Sumatran tigers left in the world.
We must stop this devastation in its tracks.
You are about to join hundreds of passionate people around the globe on a joint campaign to save the rainforest. Together, we can and will save the Orangutans.
You will receive a certificate of your membership, an instruction sheet to help you get started with your campaign and a presentation you can give to your class mates at school. Shortly you will also receive your very own Orangutan soft toy, sticker and postcard pack in the mail.
You will receive monthly updates on the campaign through the Palm Oil Resistance section in your monthly The Orangutan Project eNewsletter.
