FMT LETTER, From Andrew Gunnyon, Melbourne, via e-mail
Recently I heard the Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) is coming to Sydney in September to try and convince us how much they care about orangutans and the forests.
If the MPOB are in fact serious about orangutan conservation, then why do they refuse to implement a ‘No Kill Policy’?
And why won’t the MPOB agree to a zero tolerance on clearing endangered orangutan habitat?
If the MPOB is serious about protecting endangered wildlife, then surely they can implement these important policies from home, rather than wasting money on a PR experiment in Australia.
