Melindungi orang utan dari tempat kita sendiri

Our support is a place in which college students get professional producing support with their educational tasks. They visit our site and say, “Guys, I need you to write my paper,” In flip, we are capable of helping them with any sort of paper they may possibly have perhaps, your tutor would like you to create some dull or certain essay? Perhaps the issue is that you can not locate enough materials? Do your activity needs a lot of analysis? Or probably your professor asks you to structure your paper in an uncommon type? Whatsoever your problem is, we are usually glad to help with your “write my essay for me” ask for.

In completing this project, we discovered that there are many ways that we can reach out and support conservation efforts for orang utan in our local area.

1. Make informed choices about the products that we buy

This was the main area of research for the Year 7s. They have collated information and posted it at We were surprised by the number of products that still use palm oil, and still do not declare where it is from. We were also surprised by the wording used on product labels to disguise the presence of palm oil. Making informed choices whilst shopping can make a lot of difference.

The WWF ( highlight the following ingredients as one to watch out for as they may indicate the presence of palm oil.

INGREDIENTS: Vegetable Oil, Vegetable Fat, Palm Kernel, Palm Kernel Oil, Palm Fruit Oil, Palmate, Palmitate, Palmolein, Glyceryl, Stearate, Stearic Acid, Elaeis Guineensis, Palmitic Acid, Palm Stearine, Palmitoyl Oxostearamide, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-3, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, Sodium Kernelate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Sodium Lauryl Lactylate/Sulphate, Hyrated Palm Glycerides, Etyl Palmitate, Octyl Palmitate, Palmityl Alcohol

CONTAINS: Palm oil

Many companies are now using sustainable palm oil and are members of the Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). This is a source of pride and often indicated on labels.

2. Support The Perth Zoo in their conservation efforts

Visit the Zoo and find out more (and see our banner!). There is a very special Jungle School at the Zoo, teaching the orang utan necessary survival skills. Como SC and SAIMS students went on an excursion there earlier this year, sparking our interest in this Wildways Project!

Perth Zoo’s conservation efforts:

Conservation of the Sumatran Orangutan

Since 2006 Perth Zoo has supported and partnered with Frankfurt Zoological Society who manage the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem and reintroduction program. Working with Frankfurt Zoological Society, Australian Orangutan Project and the Indonesian Government, Perth Zoo is committed to the protection of wildlife and habitat in the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem.

Through the generous support of the public and staff expertise, Perth Zoo has been able to contribute to the release program and the establishment of wildlife patrols and education programs for local communities.

Orang utan releases:

Jungle School in Sumatra teaches ex-pet and orphaned orangutans the lessons they need to be released into the wild. With Perth Zoo’s support, more than 160 orangutans – including two born at Perth Zoo – have been released into the wild.

3. Support The Orangutan Project

The Orangutan Project (TOP) is based in Perth ( but operates nationally and internationally. Adopt an orang utan and/or become a supporter and make a difference!

The Orangutan Project (TOP) is a not-for-profit organisation, supporting orangutan conservation, rainforest protection and reintroduction of orphans in order to save the species from extinction.

TOP is a non-partisan organisation that collaborates with several orangutan conservation projects, as well as providing habitat protection through its own Safeguard project – guard patrols that deter wildlife poaching, illegal logging and land clearing in Borneo and Sumatra.

TOP also provides much needed resources for the day-to-day care needs and the reintroduction of orphaned orangutans.

Operating as an independent orangutan protection organisation, TOP exists to provide technical and financial assistance directly to support conservation projects and orangutan rescue and rehabilitation centres.

5. Contact members of parliament

CHOICE Magazine has made this easy by providing a template email to send to our state ministers regarding palm oil labeling on food products.

6. Spread the word!

Even just having a conversation with family and friends can make a big difference (or Facebook status updates!).
