#ProtectPongo – Stop use of Palm Oil – watch the video
A Street art campaign warning the public of the Orangutans’ risk of imminent extinction has arrived in London. The striking portraits capture the threat they face from deforestation because of palm oil production. Palm oil is found in the forests of Borneo and a diet for the species.
Environmentalist and artist Louis Masai and Meridian the palm oil free nut butter brand, coordinated the important #ProtectPongo message.
Louis and Meridian are touring the UK. Louis has created striking portraits of orangutans interacting with the threats they face. This is from deforestation to palm oil production. And potentially even COVID-19.
The series highlights the issues and small changes people can make to help protect the species. Also support the fund raising efforts of Meridian’s charity partner, International Animal Rescue. The charity is dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and releasing Bornean orangutans.
Campaigners have said the animals have become victims and ‘refugees’ in their own land. They say they starve because they need the oil plants to raise their young. There were once hundred of thousands now there are fewer than fifty thousand. This has led the species to be list as critically endangered and on brink of extinction
