Borneo is burning

I have just come home from Borneo and was shocked by how bad the burning was and how much it affects the wildlife down there. So far this year 138,000 hectares of rainforest have been burned just on Kalimantan, to make way for palm oil plantations. The haze is so bad you struggle seeing anything in front of you. The burning smell affects your nose and you never see the sun – just smoke! Due to the smoke there is no sun which means no flowers open up and no insects are flying around which in turn means no fruit and no food for the animals.

This is just one effect of the burning. If this goes on there are many species that are at risk of going extinct, not just orangutans.

All this takes place just because we use palm oil. If we as consumers say no to palm oil in our products, this will stop!
