Helping support animals under threat

oragutan

In the past decade nearly 80% of deforestation in Indonesia’s peat swamp forests was driven by the expansion of palm oil plantations.

Did you know that the average annual rate of forest loss in Indonesia was 498,000 hectare (ha) (FAO,2010) from 2000-2010 or the equivalent of over 55 rugby fields per hour. The effect on the Orangutan population has been catastrophic. There are only 7,000 left in the world today.

That’s why Only Good is supporting the Auckland Zoo Conservation Fund who works hard to help save animals under threat such as the Orangutan in the forests of Indonesia.

If you want to do your part then look for palm oil free products like Only Good, if everyone does little things it can add up to alot.
