Introducing “Chocolate” a gorgeous two year old Sumatran orang-utan.  The habitat of orang-utans and elephants in Sumatra and Asia has been degraded by human activity, at the expense of these animals.

When you buy your easter chocolate, have a look at the ingredients and if one of them is Palm Oil or Vegetable Oil, think about putting it back on the shelf and opting for a non palm oil chocolate.  Palm oil plantations can be replaced by eco-tourism and other businesses, so that the habitat of the Sumatran wildlife will not be wiped out within the next ten to thirty years.

You can download a palm-free Easter chocolate guide from the page below.

A regular or once-off financial donation will help Chocolate, the orang-utan.   Please click on the link below to help.

You can help Sumatran elephants by reading about the rescue of Bona at this post   HERE.

The Sumatran Orang-Utan is critically endangered.

  1. Chocolate’s eyes are so expressive . . . I’ve met many “humans” with less on the ball.

    • Haha, good one, I agree. I love orang-utans and can’t bear the thought of them becoming extinct. The latest news about clearing Aceh is very alarming so I’ve started sending out letters and hope the activists in Indonesia can step up their action. I will be setting up an Action Alert page on this site soon to flag links directly to instant actions that can be taken to conserve wildlife like the Sumatran orang-utan and elephant. Thanks for commenting!

  2. Awesome post, thanks for the info!
