Halloween and orangutans

DSC_0020Thanks to the terrific blog, Climate Mama, I learned about an important campaign to try to protect orangutan habitat.  Palm oil is a product used in many of the foods we eat including chips, cookies, and candies.  The source of much palm oil also happens to be critical habitat for the orangutan – the main threat to their survival is habitat loss.  As an added environmental threat, remember that loss of tropical rainforest also means less rainforest to “soak up” chemicals that lead to climate change.  So what can you do to help?
