Problem
Palm oil is the most widely used vegetable oil in the world. The main threat to the survival of orangutan populations in the wild is the massive expansion of palm oil plantations in Borneo and Sumatra. Indonesia and Malaysia are just two countries that together account for 85% of the world’s palm oil production. The average annual rate of forest loss in Indonesia was 498,000 hectares, from 2000–2010, or the equivalent of over 55 rugby fields per hour.The result of the extraction of palm oils is the loss of many animals habitats, the most extreme case is the Orangutans.



Solution
By just simply being selective about what you buy at the supermarket, and wary of the ingredient palm oil, this can build awareness of the loss of orangutan’s habitat. Help decrease the use of palm oil and preserve the life of orangutans.
