Orangutans are incredible creatures that are severely endangered. The thought of losing them due to palm oil plantations/habitat loss is heart-breaking. As an artist I hope to use my skill to help raise awareness and funds to help in whatever way I can. Please help me support this amazing cause!

- ‘Orang-utan’ means ‘person of the forest’ in Malay.
- A Malayan myth says that Orangutans were once human who had been punished by being sent to the forest and covered with red hair.
- Orangutans are apes and not monkeys (monkeys have tails)
- These are the largest tree dwelling animals and only exist in Borneo and Sumatra
- Orangutans live with their mum for up to 7 years.
- Indonesia and Malaysia supply 85% of global palm oil. The demand for palm oil is huge, causing rainforest destruction for plantations.
- Over 50% of orangutans have been lost in 60 years.
- Rainforests are cleared whilst the trees are still inhabited by the orangutan causing injury and death.
What can we do?
We must take responsibility for what we buy. Many products contain palm oil, but as the world becomes more aware of the destructive nature of this industry, alternatives are available. Products that come from certified sources are a must ( RSPO – Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil) and apps like Giki help us track how sustainable the products we buy are.
