"We are part of the earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters; the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat of the pony, and man--all belong to the same family". Chief Seattle

Caged no.1

The mighty and majestic Hercules. I have never before met an animal with such a strong sense of knowing. These guys should be given a chance to keep living in their forests. Millions of hectares of land stands unplanted as pristine orangutan habitat falls under the guise of development.

Rescued from the Palm Oil plantations.
BOSF works hard to find new homes for displaced orangutans.
We need the entire palm oil industry to sign up to the principles of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
Only when the entire supply chain recognises the importance of sustainable palm oil can we hope there will be a future for orangutans in the wild.

Palm Oil story reaches a Younger Generation

Those of you in the UK keep your eyes peeled for the Really Wild Show on the BBC this Wednesday (May 17th) at 4:30pm.

The show will feature a special report on the palm oil industry and its negative implications for the protection of rainforests and biodiversity in Indonesia and Malaysia.

Barcelona and the Universal Forum of Cultures to host World Environment Day 2004
This Year's Global Theme: Wanted! Seas and Oceans - Dead or Alive?

The city of Barcelona, known for its commitment to culture and urban renewal, will be hosting World Environment Day 2004, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The annual World Environment Day (WED) event, celebrated around the globe each year on or around 5 June, will take place during the nearly five-month long Universal Forum of Cultures that is being hosted by the Barcelona City Council, the Catalan Autonomous Government and the Spanish Government. Contact Eric Falt

WED, commemorated each year on 5 June is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates worldwide awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action.

WED was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972 to mark the opening of the Stockholm Conference on the Human Environment. Another resolution, adopted by the General Assembly the same day, led to the creation of UNEP.

Information on the day, Skolia, posters, fact sheets and ideas on how to celebrate WED can be found at

"Not to hurt our humble brethren (the animals) is our first duty to them, but to stop there is not enough.

We have a higher mission - to be of service to them whenever they require it.

If you have men who will exclude any of God's creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men."

Saint Francis of Assisi
