Orangutan shot 130 times

A,

Did you see? An orangutan was shot 130 times outside a palm oil plantation. In just a few weeks, executives are gathering at an exclusive palm oil conference. This is our big chance to protect what’s left of the rainforests and save the last orangutans.

Here's my original email from Saturday:




A young orangutan was shot 130 times outside a palm oil plantation. He didn’t survive -- but it’s not too late to save the last orangutans.

The companies responsible for this tragedy are meeting in five weeks in Thailand. Can you chip in to get us a seat at the table with palm oil bosses and force them to finally stop orangutan extinction?

A,

Park rangers found yet another young orangutan hanging from a tree just outside a palm oil plantation, barely alive.

He had been shot 130 times. The team of vets that rushed in couldn’t save him, but A, you can help save what’s left of his species from extinction.

PepsiCo. McDonald’s. Unilever -- and more. They all made a public promise to clean up their palm oil act by 2020 -- and they’re all hoping you won’t notice as that deadline whizzes by, rainforests keep burning, and orangutans keep dying.

It’s not too late to turn this around, but we need your help right now.

In just weeks, big industry execs are meeting in Thailand for the super exclusive, so-called “Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil."

It’s expensive to get in, but if you chip in CA$93 now, SumOfUs will get a seat at the table to hold greedy executives accountable for the blood on their hands -- and force them to drop dirty palm oil for good.

Rainforests are being burnt to a crisp to make room for cheap palm oil. Orangutans are left without homes, leaving them lost and starving. When they feed off palm fruits on plantations, they’re shot.

You’re already making huge strides to defend the orangutans. When members like you chipped in to get to Malaysia for last year’s conference, you were able to push the RSPO to raise the bar for membership and sustainable palm oil certification.

That’s why it’s so important that your voice is there again this year, right before the 2020 deadline.

If you chip in, we’ll be able to get in meeting rooms with execs, representing hundreds of thousands of SumOfUs members like you from around the world who want an end to palm oil destruction.

But if we’re not there, the industry could get away with breaking its 2020 promise and killing off the last orangutans.

We may not have the deep pockets like these corporations to fly all over the world -- but we have you. Your donation will help pay for tickets and flights to get us in the room with corporations like Pepsi and KFC.

A, will you help us get into the room and force palm oil bosses to stick to their promises?
