Plants and Animals
As it started, we will only see them in zoo cages
These highly intelligent recipients are known for their red fur and are the largest mammals that spend most of their time on trees. Sprinkling on the branches gives them long, powerful hands, but they all move on the ground.
Their destiny, however, has been uncertain for a long time. Otherwise, they are residents of tropical rainforests, and today they live only in Sumatra and Borneo. According to the Bornean orangutan root conservation fund, the populations of the apex on the island have dropped by as much as 80% in the last 30 years, and the orangutans by almost 50%. Experts believe that over the next 10 years the orangutans may disappear completely from the face of the Earth.
That is why the APE Foundation (Foundation for the Protection of Forests and the Environment) launched a humanitarian lotus. Those who engage in a one-pound action per week can win prizes in the form of clothing. Collected money is, of course, intended to preserve the orangutans at Borneo where their natural habitat is destroying the growing palm oil industry
Borneo, as the third largest island in the world (after Greenland and New Guinea), has once been home to many endangered species, but is now slowly turning into a palm oil production center, so apart from destroying natural habitats, industrial waste also pollutes water. The forest economy is also developed, and the tropical trees disappear slowly in the rainforest.
Bart Retera, founder of the APE Foundation, explained: "I've been living in Indonesia for four years now and working on a number of nonprofit projects. I saw beautiful things, but also the scenes that lume my heart. Life close to such nature is well illustrated by the consequences of greed and corruption. "
If the tree does not bite, then the forest falls to make more plantations and meet the growing demand for palm oil. Retera is just one of the people in the series who is trying to do something about the environment, and through the fund educates the children what the consequences behind them can leave the plastics and industry
"Our goal is to monitor, protect and restore the orangutan habitat and nose apes in the next few years. We educate the population and build a library, and on the other hand we spend financial resources on 'jungle guards' that guard against illegal logging and illegal hunting. The idea would be that they first react if there is a fire or if they see a medical problem, "said Retera.
