PALM OIL - TOO MUCH MONEY TO MUCH GREED BUT WE ARE ALL TO BLAME 💰 .
.
.
The main threat to the survival of orangutan populations in the wild is the massive expansion of palm oil plantations in Borneo and Sumatra..
.
Palm oil is the most widely used vegetable oil in the world, having even surpassed soya in terms of usage. Surging global demand for palm oil has fueled massive forest destruction throughout Indonesia and Malaysia, countries that together account for 85% of the world’s palm oil production. Palm oil is ubiquitous! Half the packaged food (and other) products found on supermarket shelves now contain palm oil. Palm oil and palm kernel oil are found in all manner of baked goods, such as cookies, bread, and potato chips, as well as in chocolate and milk (where it adds Vitamin A). Palm oil has also replaced coconut as the main cooking oil traditionally used in Indonesia as well as replacing peanut oil in Myanmar. Palm oil is also extensively used in cosmetics and toiletries where it adds creaminess and/or foam to the product. Palm oil is an important ingredient in the manufacturing of soaps, shampoos, detergents, and toothpaste. Increasingly, palm oil is used as a biofuel.

Oil palms only grow in the tropics and need much water. Originally native to South America and West Africa, palm oil plantations have now spread throughout the wet tropics to Papua New Guinea, parts of Asia, Kenya, and also back to countries in West Africa and South America where the palms are native. The problem with palm oil is that vast areas of virgin tropical rain forest are clear cut to open up land for cultivation. Palm oil is a huge industry. Palm oil accounts for 11% of Indonesia’s export earnings and is the most valuable agricultural export. Overall, it is Indonesia’s third largest export earner.

Národní park Gunung Leuser na Sumatře je jedním ze dvou míst na zeměkouli, kde ještě žijí orangutani ve volné přírodě. Zachraňme tato nádherná zvířata. / National park Gunung Leuser in Sumatra is one of last places, where wild orangutans live. Please save these amazing animals! 😍 🐵

4. Orangutan - People travel from all over the world to see Borneo’s shaggy red-haired orangutans, either in the wild or at a rehabilitation or rescue centres and its no wonder. Their human-like mannerisms, keen intellect and antics often leave visitors in wonder. Some have learnt how to communicate in sign language, and fashion tools to help them forage for food. Critically endangered, the orangutan faces several threats: major habitat loss due to deforestation for open oil palm plantations, forest fires, the illegal pet trade, illegal hunting and trafficking. But their cuteness and intelligence have made them an icon for wildlife conservation, and several dedicated organisations have emerged to look into their plight.

⭐ Rescued orangutan Gito! ⭐
-
Read the story...
-
Gito recently had a full physical examination and general health check-up, and we are happy to report that he passed with flying colours!
-
He is enjoying the extensive enrichment activities available to him in ‘baby school’ and can often be found climbing high in the trees alongside the other rescued orangutans.
-
It’s astonishing to think that just under 3 years ago, Gito was found dumped in a urine-soaked cardboard box.
-
He was suffering from a horrible, painful skin infection and was on the brink of death.
-
These photos show how far he has come since then.
-
We are proud to see Gito looking so healthy and happy, high up in the trees of baby school.
-
Your #support has helped fund the high quality medical treatment and the extensive rehabilitative care that he desperately needed to recover from his traumatic past.

First full day in the US and after 9.5km of walking we conquered San Diego Zoo. Zoos often get a bad wrap for keeping animals in captivity, but we were absolutely blown away by our visit. Not only are the animals obviously happy and well cared for, with big purpose built enclosures full of environmental enrichment, but the people who work at the zoo are just so passionate about their charges. It was especially wonderful to hear about the amazing conservation work the zoo is doing, especially with species threatened with extinction, and we got so much out of our visit. Sore feet and a good sleep needed, thank you so much @sandiegozoo for a great start to our family vaycay! #lovellsdoUSA #vetsgonewild #conservation #zoolife #veterinaryadventures #USAroadtrip
