Monika, I agree with you completely. I try to convince as many people as possible. But even my sister, who is a cancer survivor ( yet her cancer is incurable), doesn't care a lot. She is happy that she herself is still alive ( 3 years after chemo and stemcell transplants), because most of the people who have her cancer die in 5 years.

Then again, palm oil is NOT even declared on all the products, it is hidden behind words like plant oil etc.

Actually if all people would stop buying crap like Nutella and all the weird cookies, like Oreo and all the %#&!*% ice cream and what-not, it would already have an effect !!!!!!

signed and shared. People who are capable of doing this to Feeling creatures are just not human. I've stopped buying anything of which I assume that Palm oil is used in it and I'm waging a constant war against all acquaintances to make sure they're not supporting These companies. I believe the only way we can put a stop to this is if they just can't sell their products.

It doesn't have to be this way. We’ve made tremendous progress in getting big palm oil companies and a dozen of the world’s biggest consumer companies, including giants like Kellogg and Mars, to commit to end deforestation in their supply chains. Every week, more companies are joining up and pledging to do the right thing. Up until now, even Unilever has played a key role in promoting strict criteria for responsible palm oil production.

Dear Mr. President,

Gorillas are critially endangered and on the brink of extinction.
They are killed for their meat; their habitats are destroyed by logging, mining, agriculture, and other invasive activities; and infectious diseases ravage their families.

The U.S. government funds vital programs that help alleviate these threats to gorillas. But the newly-released federal budget is promising deep cuts in these programs – putting the future of these animals and other threatened wildlife in even greater jeopardy.

The USAID Biodiversity and Sustainable Landscapes, The Great Ape Conservation Fund, and Wildlife Without Borders are programs that enable the U.S. Forest Service to work with African land management agencies to promote sustainable forest management and slow the destruction of the rainforests.

Programs protecting the world's wildlife and wild places amount to only a miniscule part of the overall federal budget.

While we all recognize the need for responsible spending, skimming off funding for international conservation programs won't solve our budget problems.

But it will strike a devastating blow to species already on the brink of extinction. Extinction is forever, and once it is done, it cannot be undone.

Please do not make the mistake of allowing these endangered animals to go unprotected, because it is a mistake that can never be corrected.


Sincerely,

Thank you for your concern for the orangutan, but please try to understand the sad reality at present is that our rescue centres are over-subscribed and funds limited. Asking any of our rescue centres to take in more orangutans when these are the circumstances can put the entire population in the centre at risk. Such decisions to rescue or not to rescue are not taken lightly. Until significant funding can be raised, and more orangutans released, this is likely to remain the case for some time. So PLEASE do not imagine that we lack compassion, PLEASE do not stop supporting us, and PLEASE give whatever you can to help us continue to do the work we do.

Thank you.

In think Pon"y is free ?

 

" It took the Orangutan Survival Foundation a year to rescue Pony from the godless savages because whenever they showed up, the madame and the men of the "prostitute village" would brandish their poison-dipped daggers in a threatening fashion. Apparently Pony was quite the cash cow. The Orangutan Survival Foundation finally raised the money to round up 35 policemen--Read, hired mercenaries--with AK 47s--and they forced the madame and her cutthroat townies under the threat of massacre to release Pony.This is a true story. No one was charged for exploiting Pony.

Subject: Gorilla Gundul


Jamartin Sihite, CEO, BOSF

Dear Sir:

This is our plea on behalf of the gorilla Gundul, who lives on a pile of garbage beside a goat pen.
Day and night, in all weathers, this is her only life 24/7. When it rains she has no choice but to sit or sleep in the mud and her own urine
and feces: think about that for a moment.

Despite at least six personal attempts to persuade you Sir, to rescue Gundul, you have never once replied. Her only protection from the weather is a black trash bag to place over her own head.
Gundul faces every phase of a tropical storm, thunder, lightning and rain, all alone. And these rainy season are long.

It has been 20 years since she was taken from her slaughtered mother.
Gundul has not seen another orangutan for 20 years: Why not take some time and think about this as well?

She is now 21 years-old and held by an old man since 1990 in Samarinda on the east coast of Borneo.
When she was a baby, Gundul was free to go everywhere; even the old man let her around his house.
However, when she grew up, Gundul's strength and frustrations became a threat to the owner, so she
was placed inside a cage. Then, Gundul could not be kept in a cage anymore,
because she was able to destroy the wooden cage. So she was tied up at her neck by chains, and the chains are tied up to a tree.

Despite everything Gundul is a gentle and seemingly forgiving orangutan.
Her future, though, is uncertain. Will BOSF abandon Gundul the way Rambo was abandoned Rambo before he died?
The only certainty is, Gundul will not be helped unless YOU do something to help her!

In this instance Gundul's owner wants her to be confiscated.

So, we 're asking you politely but urgently to SAVE GUNDUL! Thank you!

Sincerely:

Please help free Gundul : 20 years on a chain

Please help free Gundul ~ heartbreaking.

Via Orangutan Embassy


Say Hello to Gundul. She lives on a pile of garbage beside a goat
pen. Day and night, in all weathers, this is her only life 24/7. When it
rains she has no choice but to sit or sleep in the mud and her own urine
and feces: Think about that for a moment.

Despite at least six personal attempts to persuade the CEO of nearby
Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation to rescue Gundul, he/they have never once replied. No answer, no explanation; nothing. What do you think about BOSF?

Her only protection from the weather is a black trash bag to place over
her own head. If you are familiar with tropical storms you will know all
about thunder, lightning and rain. Gundul faces all this, alone, especially at
night: Think about that for a moment. Pitch dark, torrential rain, thunder
and lightning and she is there all alone and this could be a daily
occurrence during the long rainy season.

It has been 20 years since she was taken from her slaughtered mother.
Gundul has not seen another orangutan for 20 years: Why not take some time and think about this as well?

She is now 21 years-old and held by an old man since 1990 in Samarinda on
the east coast of Borneo. When she was a baby, Gundul was free to go
everywhere; even the old man let her around his house. However, when she grew up,
Gundul's strength and frustrations became a threat to the owner, so she
was placed inside a cage. As Gundul could not be kept in a cage anymore,
because she was able to destroy the wooden cage. So she was tied up at her neck by chains, and the chains are tied up to a tree.

Despite everything Gundul is a gentle and seemingly forgiving orangutan.
Her future, though, is uncertain. Will BOSF abandon Gundul the way they
abandoned Rambo before he died? The only certainty is, Gundul will not be
helped unless YOU do something to help her.

In this instance Gundul's owner wants her to be confiscated.

If you would like to have Gundul saved, the person to write to is:

Dear Mr. President,
Dear Minister,





We are very sad to read that Virunga National Park, a World Heritage site in the Democratic Republic of Congo is in danger of becoming the next oil drilling location for SOCO International and Dominion Petroleum ignoring international law.
There is currently an oil drilling ban in the park.

Virunga National Park is Africa's oldest national park and home to about 200 endangered mountain gorillas. That's about a quarter of the entire population of mountain gorillas.
The park is home to a variety of iconic and rare species, including hippos, chimpanzees, elephants and birds.

The park also provides a sustainable living for about 30,000 fisherman who support their families fishing off of protected Lake Edward.


We ask the Congolese government to protect the park from the U.K. oil companies and enforce the oil drilling ban.

The Daily Mail revealed earlier this month that hundreds of orang-utans have been killed for food by villagers in Borneo.
Indonesia is home to 90 per cent of orangutans left in the wild.
In the past 50 years, as the demand for palm oil, timber and vegetables has grown, indonesia has lost half of its rain forests.

We ask you: please stop this development now!
The world is calling for a boycott of those products containing palm-oil!
