Choose Cruelty Free

Palm Oil Nightmare- The Rainforest Information Centre convened the Australia Palm Oil Campaign Group in October 2006. Together with Australian Conservation Foundation, Grasp Australasia, Friends of the Earth Australia, Borneo Orangutan Society Australia, Australian Orangutan Project and Humane Society International we are working together to address the impacts that palm oil plantations are having in the Asia Pacific region. In brief, the palm oil industry is devastating the unique flora and fauna in the Asia Pacific region as well as exploiting local communities who are being forced off their land. If palm oil concessions continue to replace forest at the current rate, a viable future for the Orangutan in the wild will be impossible as well as for the Sumatran tiger, Sumatran rhino, Asian elephant and other species that are on the brink of extinction
