    An orangutan infant named Aurora seems to be contemplating life after eating breakfast at the Houston Zoo. Born at the zoo in March 2011, Aurora was abandoned by her mother and hand raised by volunteers for nine months before being adopted by a female orangutan, Cheyenne.Picture: Pat Sullivan/AP

WOW! 'The Secret To Saving Orangutans May Be In Your Wine Bottle' - "Vintners may be able to grow a replacement for palm oil, the cause of one of the worst environmental nightmares on Earth. Found in everything from ice cream to detergent, palm oil is harvested on plantations that blanket large plots of land, mainly in Southeast Asia." AND is responsible for the MOST HEINOUS GENOCIDE OF ORANGUTANS and VILE VILLAGER LAND GRABS of our times!"
