Progress, but more to do

A few summers ago, I worked with our ephemeral and now-defunct little Greenpeace group on a couple of actions to try to save the last 400 or so wild Sumatran tigers. We finally got Asia Pulp & Paper to step up to the plate the other day to stop deforestation. It’s good news, but not good enough. The palm-oil plantations, supported by Oprah’s pal Dr. Oz, are wiping out habitat right & left, and poisoning pygmy elephants. There are a bunch of petitions; sometimes I think I’m wasting my time signing them all, but it worked for the tiger, so let’s all pitch in. Thanks. Here are a couple of links to review. I really feel for Joe the elephant.
