Orangutan Petition

Post  Doogs on Tue May 14, 2013 1:57 pm

Please sign, thanks:

"I live and work in the last place on Earth where endangered orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers still roam together -- but it'll be bulldozed to bits unless our President hears our call and steps in to save this unique habitat.

Right now in one of Indonesia's most pristine and untouched forests, a local Governor wants to let mining and palm oil companies move in to decimate areas the size of a million football fields! And the national Forestry Ministry looks like it might let him unless the President steps in to reject this orangutan-killing plan.

We know the President wants to be seen as a keen conservationist, but we need to tell him his green reputation and possible future UN aspirations are on the line to ensure he does the right thing. We need to act fast -- sign the urgent petition and tell everyone about this mortal threat to our majestic forest. If a million people sign in the next 3 days, I'll ensure the President hears us!"

-- Rudi Putra, Indonesia. 2013 winner of Future for Nature award.

Thats dreadful news Doogs. It all comes down to money again doesn't it which is disgusting.
I am sure they will reach their target, I have just signed and as I left the figure was
859,972 and it was climbing rapidly, my name appeared on the signed petition and then soon got bumped off as loads more signed which is brilliant.

and an update . . . .

Wow! The President has just responded committing to, "save the remaining natural forests and peatlands." Let's keep signing until we lock in a firm agreement to save the endangered Orangutan's precious forest home
