Chocolate the orang-utan

Introducing “Chocolate” a gorgeous two year old Sumatran orang-utan. The habitat of orang-utans and elephants in Sumatra and Asia has been degraded by human activity, at the expense of these animals.
When you buy your easter chocolate, have a look at the ingredients and if one of them is Palm Oil or Vegetable Oil, think about putting it back on the shelf and opting for a non palm oil chocolate. Palm oil plantations can be replaced by eco-tourism and other businesses, so that the habitat of the Sumatran wildlife will not be wiped out within the next ten to thirty years.
You can download a palm-free Easter chocolate guide from the page below.
A regular or once-off financial donation will help Chocolate, the orang-utan. Please click on the link below to help.
