The plan to kill orangutans

To President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia, Minister of Forestry Zulkifli Hasan, and Governor of Aceh Zaini Abdullah:

As concerned citizens we urge you to reject the plan to cut down protected rainforests in Aceh. Indonesia’s majestic forests are a global treasure, and we encourage engagement with the local community to develop a plan that prioritises sustainable development, and that protects this fragile ecosystem and the animals that live there.

I live and work in the last place on Earth where endangered orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers still roam together -- but it'll be bulldozed to bits unless our President hears our call and steps in to save this unique habitat.

Right now in one of Indonesia's most pristine and untouched forests, a local Governor wants to let mining and palm oil companies move in to decimate areas the size of a million football fields! And the national Forestry Ministry looks like it might let him unless the President steps in to reject this orangutan-killing plan.

We know the President wants to be seen as a keen conservationist, but we need to tell him his green reputation and possible future UN aspirations are on the line to ensure he does the right thing. We need to act fast -- sign the urgent petition and tell everyone about this mortal threat to our majestic forest. If a million people sign in the next 3 days, I'll ensure the President hears us!
