Palm oil is the number one cause of the orangutans becoming critically endangered. Companies invade the orangutans home and cut down their trees to set up oil palm plantations. Not only is this detrimental to the orangutans because the trees that are cut down provide food, but when the orangutans go looking for food, they find the palm oil, and they eat it. When the orangutans eat the palm oil companies kill them. Orangutans are critically endangered and we could easily see them go extinct in the coming years. We need to stop supporting companies that use palm oil, and protect the orangutans.
