This is an inspiring article. I think it proves that a small group of dedicated people can really make an impactful change. It also gives me hope that these youngsters will be able to address the extreme consumption habits of the societies they live in.

Go Orang-utans!

Very excited for this amazing initiative. I believe this project can serve both as an inspiration to provoke environmental change and personal action towards a more sustainable world. It could also prove to be a successful model for development and preservation for other threatened rain forests-around the world. Keep up the amazing work.

This is a great initiative knowing that nowadays, many young people spend their time in front of the TV. By showing them why and how to save the planet and its wildlife, they will realise they can do the same.
Education of the young ones is the key and thanks to the magic of internet and media to raise awareness about the consequences of deforestation, there is hope for the future. They are our future decison-makers.

Wow...a lot of people think that kids don really have enough power. Or they think that kids are too wrapped up in their video games and dramas to care. But obviously these kids aren't!!! smile
