Orangutans Fleeing Palm Oil Deforestation
by Tomas DiFiore
As palm oil plantings expand to new frontiers, the same set of environmental impacts are spreading as in the case of the Great Apes of Africa. The Orangutan films presented here are painfully moving and joyous at times. The hope and caring love attended to the rescues of gorillas, elephants, and orangutans, are reciprocated in unique ways and obvious in these films. Rescue centers need help, volunteers, money, and protected forest habitat to return the animals to the wild. At the end of the article are links to information on how to avoid palm oil in products. Some are lists, some are US and International sites, some are on Facebook.
