Save Orangutans - Avyay's Campaign

Our 5-year-old son Avyay loves animals and he takes this love and conservation very seriously. He is quite passionate about animal conservation despite being so young. 

Few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon we finished watching David Attenborough’s " A life on our planet" on Netflix which has a section towards the end on how forests in Malaysia and Indonesia are being wiped out to make way for palm plantations and thereby endangering Orangutans. Avyay asked us how and where Palm oil is used. We read to him about the source and usage of palm oil and he asked if his favorite biscuit he ate every single day had palm oil in it. He made us check the ingredients and it did contain palm oil. The same day he told us that he would not consume palm oil going forward. It has been a month and he continues to keep his word. It is not easy for a 5-year-old to give up her/his favorite chocolate biscuit. When we went to the grocery store, he looked at all the biscuits and was very sad to see that most contained palm oil. He thought that if people stopped consuming food that had palm oil, it would save orangutans and also protect the rainforest. 

He wanted to raise awareness and asked me if I would be able to share his essay, artwork and his small audio message to my friends. He said that if all our friends stopped using palm oil, perhaps forests would not need to be cut down and there would be lots of orangutans in their wild habitat.

For his 6th birthday, he would like to generate awareness and donate to this cause. All donations would directly go to  Borneo Orangutan Society, Canada. BOS Canada is an independent, registered Canadian charity (# 86282 4786 RR0001) founded to support orangutan conservation and to raise awareness of the serious threats to orangutan survival.  

Thank you.
