We would love to share a poem written by one of our young supporters...
The Orangutan's Plight
by Valentino Rodrigues, aged 10
From high in the treetops that are my home
I'm lost and afraid
I feel so alone
Our forest was huge once covering miles
It was full of life
And my mothers smiles
They are moving in closer the men with the fire
Clearing my home
With their greed and desire
These men killed my mother, it broke my heart
I'm scared as I watch them
Pull my home apart
So many of my kind have been killed in this way
We cannot stop them
We have no say
Someone please help us, we really need you
Stop destroying us and our forest
For your cheaper food
Thank you Valentino for this fantastic poem!
