Last night after finishing my blog entries for Cambodia, I checked as usual Al Jazeea for news. I found a documentary which absolutely shook me up and made me cry. I found it so important, particularly because I now live between Malaysia and Indonesia and have visited both with their extensive palm oil plantations, that I felt the need to share it with all my friends. It is a little long and takes time to download but I hope you will find the time and help with the efforts to let more people know about this calamity. It is not just the Orangutans which suffer... but ultimately we all will!
On the other hand also enjoy Cambodia!
