Valentines Day Candy

How is this related to Wildlife Conservation – really? Yes, there is a method and message, to our madness…

Palm Oil and The Great Chocolate Debate. It can help save the lives of Orangutans and many other species living on Borneo and Sumatra. Palm oil is a form of edible vegetable oil produced from the African oil plam tree (Elaeis guineensis) which has been planted on plantations throughout Malaysia and Indonesia, home to some of the world’s most endangered wildlife. These plantations replace tropical rainforest acreage in staggering numbers.

Rainforest? No. Palm Oil Plantation? Yes.

What we are asking you to do is to be a responsible consumer and purchase products from companies which either do not use palm oil or are part of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm oil. You can do that by taking a quick look at this Orangutan Friendly Palm Oil Valentine Guide.

I love the zoo...have been a member for over 10 years but if the lack of parking and traffic jam around the zoo is ridiculous. Please find a solution or loose a member. It's not fair that those supporting the zoo have to deal with that.

Will be coming from Joplin, grew up in Houston and the zoo was our favorite place to go.

Did you know: theirs approximately 3,000 tigers left in the wild😞

GO NIKKI!
