I saw this article in the US version of Readers Digest and thought I'd share it.

Jungle Rescue: Saving the Orangutans. :D

That man is a marvelous human being. The article brought tears to my eyes to think anyone could do that to a baby animal, who looks so human.
Thank you for posting it Tony.
Best wishes,
Tiff

Great article. Poor article.
The article mentions
Certain varieties of wood sold at American lumberyards are illegally harvested from the animals' home turf
but fails to say what they are.
Without the information it is difficult to know what to not buy and to promote.
I'm worried that the new bio-fuels push as this seems to have a great affect on the habitat of many creatures without any real benefit to us - humankind*.
