(May 18, 2020) Are you banning palm oil because of all the bad things you are hearing about it? For instance about orangutans losing their natural habitats? That’s a shame, since palm oil can also be grown sustainably and protect the lives of people and wildlife. There are many people committed to protecting wildlife and they are creating solutions so animals can live freely around palm plantations. Michelle Desilets, Executive Director of the Orangutan Land Trust, is one of them. She has made it her life’s work to protect orangutans and has a clear mission.
