10 Photos That Will Make You Never Want To Buy Palm Oil Ever Again

Every day the rainforests that endangered Borneo Orangutans depend on for their survival are destroyed to make way for palm plantations.

We just posted a photo essay of an orangutan rescue in an area being cleared by a company called PT Bumitama Gunajaya Agro (PT BGA) in West Kalimantan on the island of Borneo. Please share the post or simply forward this email around to your friends and family. And if you want to do even more to stop the deaths of endangered orangutans for palm oil, join RAN’s Palm Oil Action Team.

Please remember to avoid palm oil; when grocery shopping, check the ingredient label and refuse to buy anything that contains palm oil.

Please note: Some of these pictures are fairly graphic and might be hard to look at. The orangutan is stunned though, not dead. Still, these photos tell a story that is at once tragic and uplifting.

dear humans.

elders tell us of a once upon a time.
we had lands of our own,
many trees to climb.
there were only
a few of you
you did your thing,
we did ours, too.
we never annoyed each other
or got in each other’s way,
now our world is gone
and we cry
for yesterday.

signed,
orangemen of the forests

          I completely agree, but your poems always capture the essence – always perfect.
