Help break the link between palm oil and deforestation. Orangutans, elephants and many other species are losing their forest habitats to the production of palm oil, an ingredient found in everyday products like toothpaste, margarine and candy. Palm oil may be a fact of life, but some companies are taking steps to ensure it doesn't lead to more deforestation. By letting these companies know you're paying attention, you can encourage them to do the right thing for wildlife.

Destruction inside palm oil plantation leases is driving the end of this great lowland forest, despite years of efforts by local communities to defend their forests and livelihood.
