Conversion of orangutan habitat to palm oil plantations represents the single greatest threat to the survival of the orangutan. Palm oil plantations are a huge problem for orangutans (both in Indonesia and Malaysia) because entire forests are being cut down to make way for the plantations. We need to save orangutans that have been displaced and educate as many people as possible about the destruction of their habitat.
Help protect and support orangutans by taking the pledge to educate friends about deforestation in Indonesia and Malaysia due to palm oil plantations. Please forward this pledge to friends. With your help, we can give these orangutans a future.
Note: It costs around US $3,000 a year to rescue, rehabilitate and release each orangutan. There are nearly 700 orphaned and displaced orangutans being cared for in rescue centers supported by Orangutan Outreach.
