As industrial organizations continue the drive to increase palm oil plantation production and paper making on the island of Sumatra, this Orangutan suffered serious injuries at the hands of an air-gun toting poacher. The mother Orangutan lost her new born baby as a result of this attack. She had 74 air pellets in her body when rescued by an animal shelter, blinded with six pellets in her eyes, many broken bones, including a broken collarbone.

Environmental activists: Email, mail, call or text the national and local governments there, including the tourism associations involved with the area.

Maybe that message has not yet reached South East Asia. Palm oil is certainly proving harmful to the animal populations, previously mentioned here.
