Re: DeforestAction and Orangutans

It happens all over the world, in big and in small and it's sad.
Even few trees make a difference, read this article I just found today in the news!

Many trees a forest can change the whole climate balance in an area! Here in the South west we are trying to save the Coronado National Forest from a threatening mining project please sign the petition in OPPOSITION TO MINING IN THE SANTA RITA MOUNTAINS.

I think we should have an international law (or convention) on the level of UN defining places and territories which should be reserved and protected. Nobody (no one organization, government or group) has right to operate in these territories, which should be natural heritages places around the world (like Amazon forests etc..) The problem of the protection of the ocean also should be discussed.


Great idea. UN involvement and international cooperation is required.

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.


That is true because it converts CO2 into oxygen.coolcoolcoolcoolcool

i dont know whether 'WOW' is enough for this inspiring initiative.
that's children being so proactive, what are we doing?

folks, lets not read this article for reading sake but make concious effort in our own ways to effect positive change regarding deforestation.

I think DeforestACTION is awesoeme! I've been helping to save the orangutans for 3 years ever since I visited the orangutans in Borneo. I found out about DeforestACTION's Earthwatchers which I have become involved with. You can check out my facebook page for orangutans and my website here:

Watched a programme on BBC entertainment yesterday about Orangutans in Borneo.
It was really sad...
Today, I commit to make my life as much as Palm oil free as possible!

Good work!

I thought the people interested in this would find this video relevant: The World's Rarest Gorilla Caught on Film in Cameroon. http://www.treehugger.com/endangered-species/worlds-rarest-gorilla-caught-film-cameroon.html

The Wildlife Conservation Society got this footage. Let's protect species and their natural habitats!
