This mother was found on a palm oil plantation because her forest canopy had been destroyed. A mob beat her, then tried drowning her in a swimming pool. After the photo was taken she died, her baby was rescued. THIS HAPPENS EVERY DAY IN INDONESIA AND MAYLASIA. EVERY DAY. 70% OF THE RAINFOREST IS GONE FOREVER. EVERY BAR OF SOAP AT WHOLE FOODS contains palm oil.! Most packaged foods you buy also do. Boycott palm oil now to stop this. Please READ Peace Panthers article on how to detect palm oil in your products: http://www.ultraculture.org/palm-oil/

of course the humans there need to live as well. 

Cash crops don’t really benefit poor communities. They can’t eat it, only export it - for a fraction of its a Western market value. That’s if they own the company, but usually that’s foreign, too. So they get paid a pittance, with which they have to buy imported food, the cost of which fluctuates with the international market. Meanwhile the profits go overseas, their natural resources are severely depleted, the rivers silted and polluted, the land overused & soil turned into dirt. What are they left with? Survival. Perhaps. There must be a better way for them, the rainforest and the Orangutans. We just need to think smarter, question more, & be willing to change (as opposed to just expecting them too).

you’re right but people obviously feel that these things are related.and survival is more than nothing for desperate people. 
one the one hands there is the west trying to exploit resources and then there’s the west trying to protect animals. obviously nobody cares about the humans. 
with elephants and rhinos the best results have been where local humans are involved and profiting like reasonable hunting and such. i don’t know what the solution is here. 
we’ve messed it up pretty well that’s certain. 

We’re saying much the same thing, basically. You can’t genuinely solve world poverty & inequality; climate change; food (& other resource) distribution inequalities; nor deforestation & habitat loss; without a global solution that targets all of it. The West must be willing to change. We hold so much of the power, it’s meaningless if we don’t.  As you say, the West meddles and creates the problem, then meddles in an (ultimately ineffectual) attempt to fix part of the problem without worrying too much about the rest, because it seems too hard.

This is honestly the best poster I have found in a while supporting breast cancer awareness. I am honestly so sick of seeing, “set the tatas free” and “save the boobies”. There is no reason in hell a life threatening, life ruining disease should be sexualized. “Don’t wear a bra day,” go fuck yourselves. You’re not saving a pair of tits, you’re saving the entire package: mind, body, and soul included. Women are not just a pair of breasts.

The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?
