But I continue going to bed at 4:30-5:00 a.m. for the Endangered Species, victims of Corporations' Greed. Lone Droscher-Nielsen, the Danish "Orangutan hero", in 1 of the Conferences I attended in London,, said that the problems of IllegalLogging, PetTrade, & Bushmeat consumption, were already present decades ago. The indigenous man used to cut 1 valuable tree in the middle of the Forest (Retail), & this resulted even beneficial for the Forest that restored itself...But everything changed with the advent of Palm Oil!! Corporations destroying 300 football fields of Rainforest every hour in Sumatra & Borneo (Wholesale)= Complete & Definitive Destruction!!

This is one of the reasons why this Group was created, but people seem not to care less! I continuously beg Members to Invite friends, to Spread the word, also on other Networks but there is NO feedback except for a few of them."I'm a single drop...all together we are an Ocean" has always been my motto, but we are only 4,000! None of the Big Companies can be scared of such a small No. of people! Our Counterparts are Big Corporations: Oil, PalmOil, Fuel, Timber, Food&Fastfood, Personal Care, Cosmetic, Chemical, Pharmaceutical etc. Companies, Corporations, Giants...

FaceBook Disabled my Account in May2010!!! When on FB, I recruited more than 3,500 to my Animal/Environmental Causes (OrangutanOutreach, OrangutanLandTrust, Don't Palm Us Off, JaneGoodall Inst., TheCove, Rapes in Congo, etc) I had 3,000 Friends & made Donations for $635. I LOST EVERYTHING when FB Disabled my Account (Entered the Care2 Community thereafter:June2010). FB Disabled my ACCOUNT because I was posting my Link to “my” Petition for Orangutans, Tigers, Elephants, Wildlife, Biodiversity, Rainforests, “Label PalmOil"(On my Profile) for which I worked hard, even 10 hrs/day, since when my UK friend Ryno Nel wrote it & I signed it for 3rd. FB considered it as a SPAM declaring I violated their rules!! Isn’t it more probable that the "PalmOil"/Oil/Logging Lobby(Corporations) defend their Money/Greed Interests?? Same days: FB blocked also the Petition Against BP(the Gulf Disaster)!! Even if they DISABLED me: my Orangutan Petition reached Total 6,455 Signs!!! Afterwards it was awaiting decisions by the EUParliament.

from Susan G.: Thanks for the friendship and for making a difference with our animals you rock!!!:)

from Debbie Williamson: As a child I often visited the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo with my family or classmates, and still recall those fond memories. In 1998, I realized it had been almost 20 years since my last visit, so I felt the urge to grab the camera and re-live those past excursions. One of the trip's highlights was a young female Orangutan rolling around within her burlap "sleeping bag", and performing for the smiling crowd. She then seemed to pause for a moment, allowing the shutterbugs to snap off a few memorable photos.

When I created this Group I didn't think to POST Petitions to get a feedback from Members. As I state in my invitation: Petitions are here AVAILABLE for everybody to be Signed.

Then I realized that results are obtained if I POST them!!!

But if I POST:

MANY complain to get too many Emails, UnjoinGroup & DeleteFriendship!!! (I don’t delete friendship (e.g.) to Cher/SimoneD. because I get pages of messages…). What shall I do???

"I'm only a single DROP, ALL together WE are an OCEAN" inspired me, but except for a few Members, my continuous requests to Members to "INVITE friends" are not followed.

But I still continue going to bed at 4:00-5:00 a.m. for Endangered Species & Signed 6,880 Care2 Petitions since June 2010, as I'm convinced that WE MIGHT make the Difference...

My invitation's personal message:
Dear Friends,
Please join this excellent group! The owner, Michela, is dedicated to saving Orangutans and Tigers from extinction, mainly due to rainforest destruction for planting palm oil. You'll learn a lot by being part of this group, and your help will be greatly appreciated. Especially by the animals whose existence is in Immediate Peril.
If not interested in joining groups at this time, no need to reply.
However, I urge you to seek out related petitions and give your voice to the voiceless.
With best and most sincere wishes,

- Simon, to see if they belong to this Group it is easy to be checked in their Profile, under the:  Groups item.

- "Invite your friends that have not been invited yet" is what I do 4 or 5 times a day, as always new friends have been invited by me every day.

- Otherwise sending my standard Invitation Text directly to the person, it's more difficult as I have 1800 friends.....

the whole earth was covered in water,would an ocean be enough?
my page title is save the tigers, I'm starting to think,not enough undeserving humans,
no matter how many we get, will be able to correct the heartless legacy of abuse and underappreciation of the beauty and importance of our wild world.
maybe,it's a mental disorder with some people, where they just can't or won't come to terms with their negative or apathetic effect on the animal world.
I hope I don't live to see the end of these incredible wonders of the earth.
After seeing that picture of that poor elephant in bondage for people's amusement; I AM REALLY STARTING TO WONDER.
