Palm oil suppliers to Mondelēz, one of the world’s biggest brands, known for it’s products like Cadbury chocolate bars, Oreo cookies and Ritz crackers have destroyed 25,000 hectares of orangutan habitat in Indonesia in just two years (2015 – 2017). Mondelēz buys much of it’s dirty palm oil from the biggest palm oil trader in the world, Wilmar International, whose suppliers are trashing rainforests.
Deforestation for palm oil is a serious threat to orangutans and other endangered species like the Sumatran Rhino. Both the Sumatran and newly discovered Tapanuli orangutan lost more than half their habitat between 1985 and 2007.
The pictures from our archive document the beauty of the Indonesian rainforest and the threats to its biodiversity.
Help protect the Indonesian rainforest by asking Mondelēz to cut off Wilmar and prove the palm oil it uses comes from growers that are not destroying rainforests.
