#alexbeldiphotography 🤙🏼 During a quick look into my Archive i find that moment of that funny little guy. I'm glad that photography have the power to bring back memories. That little guy was playing with that dead leaf and at a certain moment he placed it on his head ahah. When you are there and observing their behaviour, trust me, its funnier. During these moment i find them very similar to us in the end we are 97% similar to them.
For example the babies grow up slow, when they are 2,3 years old they are still very small and they only care about playing all day. In that picture i think that he's around that age. The mother is very protective and when they move and the mother is too fast, the baby is left behind and he cries. It really melt your heart, much love💚 #respectcreation
My project on Instagram at:
Orangutan habitat in north Sumatra is being lost at an extremely high rate, mainly due to fire and conversion of forests to oil palm plantations and other agricultural development. This species depends on high-quality forests. Widespread forest fires, many set deliberately to clear land for plantations, are becoming a regular disaster.
Tips on How to Find Virtuous Palm-Oil Products
Though it’s nearly impossible to avoid palm oil in your daily life, you can help ensure the products you buy don’t contribute to climate change and hasten the demise of the Helmeted Hornbill. The Rainforest Action Network tracks the industry closely, and publishes annual progress reports on “The Snack Food 20”—companies that control some of the world’s best-known sweets and chips brands—and their commitments to using conflict-free palm oil. (In addition to driving deforestation, the industry has been implicated in widespread land-grabbing and labor abuses.) Earning high marks in the 2015 report were Mars, Smucker’s, General Mills, Kellogg’s, Nestlé, Dunkin’ Brands, Hershey’s, and Krispy Kreme. Laggards included Campbell’s, Tyson Foods, ramen makers Nissin Foods and Toyo Suisan Kaisha, PepsiCo (Doritos), and the KraftHeinz Company.
