Palm Oil Is Destroying These Animals’ Homes

    Orangutans are losing their homes because of palm oil and could be extinct within 10 years.

    The Palm Oil industry is destroying these precious creatures habitat.  So much that they run the threat of extinction in 10 years.

    Indonesia is home to some of the most rich and biodiverse rainforest in the world.

    It contains over 80 endemic species and some of the world’s most unique and iconic endangered wildlife such as the orangutan, elephant and tiger.

    But these animals are in grave danger.

    Every hour 300 football fields of precious remaining forest is being ploughed to the ground across South East Asia to make way for palm oil plantations.

    Palm oil is used in everything from snack foods to soaps. It is found in over half all packaged items on our supermarket shelves.

    In the last 20 years, over 3.5 million hectares of Indonesian and Malaysian forest have been destroyed to make way for palm oil.

    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.

    Take action today before it’s too late.
