Dear Friends of the Orangutan,

The Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation UK would like your help on behalf of our endangered, red-haired cousins. One of our supporters recently had the idea of sending our YouTube video to her MP and received a prompt response, proof that a simple email can have a significant impact, especially when accompanied by effective imagery. Here is the MPs response to this concerned supporter:

Dear Ms McEntee,

Thank you for your email.

The video is indeed shocking and I agree with you about the importance of conserving the remaining forests in Indonesia and the fears expressed in the film that an unintended consequence of the rush to biofuels has been the destruction of forests to make way for palm oil.

Yours sincerely,

David Liddington

So please do take a moment to copy and paste the short message below and send it to any of the following:

MP for your constituency

your MEP

Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Hilary Benn MP

or direct to 10 Downing Street.
