Este  fragmento pertenece al libro Fauna: Animales Salvajes de África, de mi admirado Félix Rodriguez de la Fuente. En él incluye el monólogo para un elefante muerto donde el pueblo pigmeo canta la canción del elefante a uno caido a manos de los 'sin alma'.

'Orang-utan' means: People/man of the Forest.
But what is the People of the forest without FORESTS??

Watch what you include in your shopping list, be aware of what oil palm products are causing to the environment. Companies should label properly their products.

There's a dilema between the boycott to palm oil products and demand deforestation-free sustainable palm oil (CSPO)
Many voices claims that "Certified sustainable palm oil is not guaranteed to be deforestation-free, nor is the destruction of peatlands banned.
 
While purchasing certified sustainable palm oil is a good first step, it does not address all the negative environmental impacts associated with the production of palm oil. There are steps palm oil producers can take to eliminate these impacts: palm oil can be grown on degraded land instead of forested land, and on mineral soils instead of peat soils. In addition, existing palm oil plantations can increase crop yields to reduce the need for new plantation expansion."

But to carry out these measures will take very long.

According to many orangutan conservation NGO or others working in this issue who doesn't support the total boycott of palm oil, you can eliminate some products from your shopping list but that wont resolve the problem.

"They should boycott unsustainable palm oil. Palm oil is an incredibly high-yielding vegetable oil, which means that anything replacing it will have to use more land - that does not solve the issue of deforestation and associated land use change. Better to get palm oil production ‘right’ to avoid leaking the issue elsewhere to another commodity.”

Also there's a widely extended product that threats either forests and wildlife too, and is the european Bio-diesel made with palm oil, a very lucrative business extendedly used besides the food.
Dont forget the biofuel!
