Save the Orangutans!!
help us and our homes
The Victorian Zoo have made conservation programs that are designed to help animals that are endangered by humans. These programs help people to recognize and further understand the bad effects and impacts that people can have on animal’s lives and their habitats, this could simply result to the products humans make, use or buy. People’s actions and decisions can also impact the orangutan species. The program ‘Don’t palm us off ‘ is a program that boosts people’s knowledge about how bad the products they buy/use or produce affect orangutan’s everyday lives, by going into their habitats and clearing tropical rainforest land in use for our everyday lives.
