A few extraordinary people get up every morning to change the world for good.
This book is dedicated to these tireless heroes and to a brighter future for our fragile planet.
At ages 8 and 7, co-authors Abbey and Aiden Lemons met “Pete” and Dr. Birute Galdikas (the lady in the big floppy hat) at the Orangutan Foundation International Care Center in Indonesian Borneo. There, they witnessed first hand the plight of orangutans.
They began to understand how palm oil products are causing the destruction of tropical rainforests throughout the world and the natural habitats of animals like orangutans.
Now that Abbey and Aiden are both in middle school, they wanted to share what they learned. So they wrote this book. Please pass it on to your friends!
Every minute of every day, a bio-diverse forest the size of five football fields is destroyed to make way for industrial agriculture.
Please visit the Orangutan Foundation International and support the incredible work they do to save this iconic species from extinction: www.orangutan.org
