The current status of the Sumatran orangutan in the wild is rated as critically endangered. The main reason for this is due to natural habitats being destroyed in order to create palm oil plantations.
There are many food products made of palm oil misrepresented as vegetable oil. Currently, the Melbourne zoo is running a campaign called "don't palm us off" design to create consumer awareness of food products whereby manufacturers accurately label their products to ensure consumers make informed decisions about the products they are buying.
Please read the labels and make informed decisions about the products you are buying
