Indonesia's Rainforests and Orangutans Still Gravely Threatened

Well, here's a change of palette - rainforests. Now why can't we just use less of them disposable chopsticks, and change wooden furniture less often? It's no joke that the Orang Utans are dying for our chopsticks and toilet paper. So the next time you want to throw away that tissue after just one sniffle, think again. You know what they say the flap of a butterfly, one blow from your nose may impact the Orangs the same way. ----- Subject: RAINFOREST ALERT: Indonesia's Rainforests and Orangutans Still Gravely Threatened From: Date: Thu, Apr 6 2006 4:52:34 AM -0600 ACTION ALERT PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY! Indonesia's Rainforests and Orangutans Still Gravely Threatened By Rainforest Portal, a project of Ecological Internet, Inc. April 6, 2006 TAKE ACTION Initial progress must be consolidated, and further rainforest protections established The Indonesian government recently announced it was abandoning plans to destroy 1.8 million hectares of rainforest by establishing oil palm plantations in prime orangutan habitat. While political maneuvering continues by those supporting the project, this strategic victory is encouraging and important. We believe the Indonesian government should be taken at its word, even as we work to consolidate this initial victory and to otherwise protest the state of Indonesia's rainforests which are in dire crisis. Ecological Internet asks that you send the Indonesian President a congratulatory email making further policy requests. It is important the project cancellation is formalized and permanently laid to rest, and the ancient rainforests that were threatened are given permanent protected status that is effectively enforced. Please also express support for the Indonesian government's recent preliminary announcement of its participation in the "Heart of Borneo" tri-country conservation initiative which aims to preserve one of the most important centers of biological diversity in the world, covering approximately 220,000 km2 of rainforests and numerous wildlife species including the critically endangered orangutan. To be maximally effective the rainforest movement must acknowledge progress, however tentative and inadequate, even as we intensify our efforts. Take Action!
