Palm Oil Industry: STOP THE TORTURE AND KILLING OF ORANGUTANS

    1. Friends of the Orangutans
    2. Petition by

      Friends of the Orangutans

      Malaysia, Malaysia

Not content with shooting orangutans, the palm oil industry in general proceeds to shoot themselves in their feet on an almost daily basis. Take the Malaysian Palm Oil Council (MPOC) as an example.

While proclaiming their members uphold the laws of both Malaysia and Indonesia which give theoretical protection to endangered species, inexplicably the MPOC and MPOB refuse to endorse and support a No Kill policy towards endangered species.

Despite the advantages to both their industry and the animals being spelt out to the MPOC/MPOB, they still won’t endorse such a policy. This begs the question, why? Might it have something to do with 300 orangutans having disappeared without trace from Sabah in the last seven years? Or, the rapid Proboscis monkey population decline. Could it have something to do with the Malaysian rhino facing extinction?

For answers we need look no further than Sabah itself. The Director of the Sabah Wildlife Department, The Minister for Environment, no less, and Sabah’s leading orangutan expert are all on record recently as having said the palm oil industry is singularly responsible.

Instead of spending an eye-watering eight million dollars this year paying consultants to spread lies, this money would be much better spent on implementing a No Kill policy. There is no downside to a No Kill policy, unless you are a lawbreaker.

No one is trying to ban palm oil or have it substituted; for the palm oil industry to say otherwise is mischievous bordering on slander.

Today the RSPO announced how China was demanding more and more green (sustainable) palm oil. India will shortly follow, as will Pakistan, as news spreads of the mass slaughter of endangered species by non-RSPO members.

Non-members, those who won’t endorse a No Kill policy, face as bleak a future as the endangered species they continue to relentlessly kill. The MPOC/MPOB are out of touch with public opinion and consumer wishes, and because of this they are putting themselves in the line of fire and out of business.

MPOC/MPOB public relations are an unmitigated disaster. Members might want to look hard at how their money is being wasted and how badly their organisation is being led.

 

Many thanks,

Sean Whyte

      It is in the palm oil companies own interests to use sustainable methods, including a No Kill policy re orangutans.

      Orangutans are such beautiful creatures, needing our protection.

      This is another example of the lack of humanity occurring. These precious animals don't deserve the pain and suffering that is coming upon them.
