Orangutan means “person of the forest” and for the past 100 years this great ape, and our closest relative has been losing its home! Recently listed by the IUCN as ‘critically endangered’ with more than a thousand individuals being killed each year, it’s predicted that Orangutans will be extinct within a decade, but thankfully the solution rests in our hands and what we buy.
Action. 1 – Inspire compassion for both species of Orangutans and raise awareness of the threats of unsustainable palm oil plantations.
Action. 2 – Provide public support, so consumers have the knowledge they need to buy ethical products that don’t contribute to the extinction of these ‘critically endangered’ animals.
Action. 3 – Produce a positive and inspiring film from Borneo and Sumatra, to present through social media, schools, universities and yoga studios.
