Low Survival Rate For Tiger Cubs

Tue 30th September 2014 (0 comments)



Among the world's most iconic animals, the tiger is by far one of the most famous and is an animal that is loved and adored by people of all ages from around the world. However, these elusive creatures are now very rare with all species either considered to be endangered or critically endangered.

Palm Oil Campaign

Palm Oil Campaign

Palm oil plantations have been popping up rapidly over recent years, but many of them are illegally set-up in natural forest and peat-land and are completely unregulated. Thousands of acres of both primary and secondary forest that are either vital to conservation or the native people are being cleared every year. The trade is thought to now account for up to 10% of the world's total greenhouse gas emissions.
 
This boom has happened mainly over the last 10 years and has made palm oil the most used edible oil today. It is found in thousands of products from chocolate and biscuits to soap and lipstick, but many companies actually have no idea where their palm oil even comes from. Under current European legislation, companies do not have to state if they have used palm oil in their products, instead it can be labelled as vegetable oil!
