A series of photos released this week by Greenpeace shows that an Indonesian palm oil company is continuing to clear orangutan habitat in Borneo despite a pledge to stop destroying the forest.

Yesterday I sent a message to Bank of America asking them to stop funding deforestation and habitat destruction. I doubt they'll listen, but at least I made the effort. Within another month or two, I probably will have moved my account to a credit union anyway.

and yet their airline has banned sharkfin delicacies - now there's a tiny nod to decency.

Personally I would never TRUST Indonesia's WORD on anything. So I am not surprised by their continuing habitat DESTRUCTION.

I read labels on food assiduously, and boycott anything containing palm oil because of the environmental destruction caused by its production, and I email or Facebook message any company using it to tell them that.

But, Indonesia needs to see some way that their environment and rare, unique wildlife are worth more than the revenue generated by things like palm oil plantations -- ecotourism, maybe?

Thank you, Cal. People are getting slowly conscious of the disaster the use of palm oïl creates but I'm afraid this is too slow: Indeed, there are those who have too much work to pay attention to that and won't read the labels on the products they buy, and those who simply don't know anything about the slaughter of orangutans and the destruction of their forest and, at last, those who simply don't care. There should be people in Indonesia whose job would be to protect absolutely and honestly the remaining rainforest.

Noted and shared. And now palm oil is in practically everything prepared. It's so sad. Corporations and the uber wealthy don't care what they destroy as long as they're raking in the bucks.

Stop buying products that contain palm oil! Nutella, International Delight coffee creamer, "natural no-stir" peanut butter, instant ramen noodles, many brands of margarine and microwave popcorn, "yogurt" covered snacks, are the worst palm oil offenders in my book.

I hope that we and they and can stop the destruction of the rainforest.
Where are the petitions?

Noted,thanks Cal and Michela. The deforestation is too horrific. Boycott all palm oil products for sure. Indonesia needs to pay for the devastation it has caused, they are too evil and greedy.
