Palm oil is killing Orangutans & destorying the rainforest
Palm oil is killing Orangutans, Elelphants, Sumatran Tigers, Sumatran Rihnos and destorying the rain forest. The orangutans are the two exclusively Asian species of extant great apes. Native to Indonesia and Malaysia, orangutans are currently found in only the rainforests of Borneo and Sumatra. And unfortunately this is where palm oil is extracted for production.
The single greatest threat facing orangutans today is the rapidly expanding palm oil trade. Rainforests are being burned and cleared at the rate of 300 football fields per hour to make way for oil palm plantations.
There is no doubt that we can produce sustainable palm oil. (CSPO) So let's demand it together!
Please sign this petition- We want Canada to only import CSPO products!
Make your voice heard!
