Save the Orangutans - PETITION

- 3670 days ago -
Since 1980 over 80% of Orangutans have been wiped out all because of western civilisations increasing demand for palm oil. Orangutans used to live all across east Asia, but now have been restricted to just the small Islands of Borneo and Sumatra in South

If you do a search on ABC Fm in Melbourne AUstralia you will be able to listen to a one hour interview with this Dutch Man who lives in Indonesia who has devoted his life to saving Orangutans. He was saying that PALM OIL IS IN ALL OILS for cooking but has a disguised name.

we are as humans 3 C of separation to Orangutans. They can understand every word you say and they also have the knowledge like we do in figuring out things b/c they have an analytical and logical brain. The adults like we do must teach the young babies all about which tree to eat from and what time of the year. There are around 1000 different species of trees in which they collect fruit, nuts and leaves for eating from. They also teach the babies what roots ie orchids to choose and which part of the stalk they need to use to mush it up to use for dipping in water to drink. My thoughts forever on this was their patience in doing it for what seems like hours just to get a drink. The same as squishing up a stick that is think enough to stick down and Ant hole to eat them. It takes forever. They reach a height of 6 feet and their width span is 10 ft.Thats huge isnt it? Females are shorter of course. Their babies stay with them for many years the same as our babies /children stay with us.

YOu will be facinated like I was. I will re listen to Willie Smits who lives in Indonesia and takes care of the Orangutans. Here is the link
