It’s World Orangutan Day!

We should do all we can to make sure these elegant furballs can keep on keepin’ on! Check out their website and FB for more deets. Oh, and say hi, if you will, to Noddy!

  1. Show your love for orangutans by telling food companies to stop using palm oil. Seems like it’s not that healthy, anyway.

  2. Sweet, lovely animals!

  3. Nicest people in the world.

  4. Ook!

    I’d rather tell companies to obtain their palm oil responsibly. I don’t know what it’d take to get them to do it, but given that for all its problems the US government is able to stop companies from clearcutting redwood forests and so forth, it has to be possible. Maybe this is a problem for nuclear-tipped cruise missiles.

    Yay for orangs in hammocks!

    I want to be an Orangutan Forest School Teacher! Where do I sign up? If it helps, I can speak Librarian: Ook. 😀
