OFFICIAL: To recognize the most iconic victim of the palm oil industry, International Orangutan Day has been set for August 19th, EVERY YEAR! This event is to help encourage the public to take action in preserving this amazing species. #OrangutanDay
From 1992-2000, the population of the Sumatran orangutan is considered to have declined by more than 50%. Its relative, the Bornean orangutan population fell nearly 43 percent in the past decade, from 35,000 in 1996 to 20,000 in 2006. Since these studies were done, deforestation rates have continued to climb which means the actual populations are well below these.
Something has to be done to save orangutans and that is the reason for International Orangutan Day! #OrangutanDay
Please SHARE with your friends to help raise much needed attention and awareness for these beautiful red apes.

Mais, je ne pense pas que l’art doit être forcément accessible.
L’art doit faire réfléchir, et d’abord, on ne peut faire réfléchir qu’en montrant des choses fortes, ou autrement.
On n’est pas là pour tout le monde, on est là pour entrouvrir des portes.
Mais après, il faut faire le travail de rentrer dedans, de se poser des questions.
Ce n’est pas si simple

Natural abilities are like natural plants; they need pruning by study.
-- Francis Bacon
We are like tenant farmers chopping down the fence around our house for fuel when we should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy — sun, wind and tide. ... I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.
-- Thomas Alva Edison (1931)
Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. There is no disgrace in honest failure; there is disgrace in fearing to fail.
-- Henry Ford
