Dead orangutans, it's a massacre

Our last chance to save them

25 orangutans will die today. Just like yesterday, and tomorrow.

Palm oil deforestation is killing the last orangutans on our planet, and if we don’t act now, there won’t be any left in just 8 years.

We’ve got a plan to stop this massacre before the end of the year, but we need your help to double down now. Will you make a small monthly donation to save the orangutans from palm oil destruction?

A,

Orangutans need trees to live. But profit-hungry companies are tearing down and burning their rainforest homes to grow palm oil trees instead. Orangutans are shot dead when they dare explore these new plantations.

Experts don’t mince their words: unless we do everything we can right now, orangutans will be gone forever in less than 8 years.

Mondelez, Nestlé, and Unilever all buy this dirty palm oil. It’s everywhere, from snacks to detergent and make-up.

But with your help, we can save the last orangutans from cheap palm oil.

Your power has already convinced companies like McDonald’s, Starbucks, and PepsiCo to commit to no-deforestation palm oil policies. You can help us do it all again -- and save the orangutans before the end of the year.

A small monthly gift from you will help roll out tried and true winning tactics to transform the whole industry -- before it’s too late. Can I count on your small monthly donation today?

Multinational corporations’ greed for cheap palm oil has decimated the rainforests where orangutans live. Every year, millions of acres of pristine rainforest are destroyed -- and replaced by huge palm oil plantations.

Deprived of their natural habitat, orangutans starve. When they feed off palm fruits on plantations, they’re shot. Villagers often find dead orangutans -- remember when an orangutan was shot a whopping 130 times in Borneo?

A monthly donation from you, A, would put us one step ahead of palm oil villains. Just a few coins a month will help us get the necessary intel, respond to more tip-offs, and roll out even bolder tactics to compete with Nestlé, Mondelez, and Unilever’s well-oiled, well-funded marketing machines.

With your continued support, we can force the palm oil industry to adopt and enforce stronger standards to protect the rainforest. We CAN save the orangutans before it's too late -- but we can only do that with you by our side.

The industry's deadline to achieve no-deforestation is 2020, we’re there and the clock is ticking. Now more than ever, we need your ongoing help to force industry giants to cut conflict palm oil off their supply chains and save the orangutans from palm oil destruction.

Campaigning to push the palm oil industry to do the right thing costs money -- whether it’s with brand-jamming ads and billboards, viral videos, or commissioning research to dig up dirt on them.

We may never match the deep pockets of Unilever and Nestlé, but when all of us chip in a little bit, we become powerful enough to take them on.

Will you please make a monthly gift to save the orangutans?
