Asia: Species Endangered by Palm Oil Deforestation

Sun Bear Helarctos malayanus euryspilus

These unique and beautiful creatures face a threat to their very existence from the replacement of their rainforest home with oil palm plantations in Northern and South East Asia. These lush and fertile forests harbour an immense range of biodiversity not found anywhere on the planet. Thinking, feeling, intelligent beings that love their children and just want to survive and have their animal communities left in peace. Hot spots for palm oil deforestation include: Borneo, Sumatra, Indonesia, Vietnam, China, Burma, Thailand, Brunei, The Philippines, Malaysia, India and Sri Lanka. These animals have a IUCN Red List status of Critically Endangered, Endangered or Vulnerable and are declining. Yet there is hope and there are a number of ways you can Take Action to Protect Them.

1000’s of beautiful #animals in #Asia face #extinction from the destruction of their #rainforest home for #palmoil and other commodities. You can help them by going plant-based and joining the #Boycott4Wildlife on #palmoi

Hi, I’m Palm Oil Detective’s Editor in Chief. Palm Oil Detectives is partly a consumer website about palm oil in products and partly an online community for writers, artists and musicians to showcase their work and express their love for endangered species. I have a strong voice for creatures great and small threatened by deforestation. With our collective power we can shift the greed of the retail industry and influence big palm oil to stop cutting down forests. Be bold! Be courageous! Join me and stand up for the animals with your art and your supermarket choices!
