‘Happy’ International Orangutan Day

Today is International Orangutan Day.  I know this because I received an email from Greenpeace wanting to let me (and the rest of the World) know that Bornean Orangutans have officially been classified as “critically endangered” – meaning they’re now on the brink of extinction.

We use to live quite happily without palm oil, there appears to be no life saving or life enhancing benefit for humans in the present day.  Cheap to produce, yet so costly in other ways.

The arrogance of humans over yet another species.  Welcome to another day on Planet Earth ..
