    Me too. So sad for them. Just out there not understanding what is happening, and not knowing what to do or where to go.

    It happens in Malaysia and other areas that are big producers of palm oil. When they burn off the crops at the end of the growing season fires drive out orangutans, if they are lucky to be able to get out. The smoke gets so bad it disorients them. I have friends who live in Singapore who have shown me photos where there is like zero visibility there from the smoke blowing over from Malaysia. To this day I avoid palm oil when I’m aware of its pretense. It’s impossible to know what’s in everything, but I try.

    Indonesia's the epicenter of destructive palm oil production. The government there, producers like Wilmar, and buyers like Unilever are the fucking DEVIL!!!!

    So glad to see the huge support this project/fundraiser has received.

    I too try to avoid palm oil where I can, but an unbelievable amount of products contain that. More and more people realise the negative effect of palm oil these days, yet the demand for it is only increasing. Very sad.

    The Koala is such a beautiful animal and sadly this is happening not that far from where I live... ;-(
