"Green the orangutan lies on a mattress inside a rainforest shack, taking her final breaths after a life full of tragedy.
The female ape — a victim of deforestation to make way for palm oil plantations — can be seen clutching at the pillow, staring sadly into the camera lens.
The heartbreaking footage was shot during the making of a new documentary hoping to bring awareness of the plight of Indonesian orangutans .
Volunteers plucked the squealing Green from the mud in Sumatra as she lay amongst the wreckage of the destroyed forest.
She was taken to an orangutang refuge in Kalimantan and spent her final days lying on a mattress.
The 48-minute film, named after the orangutan and made by Patrick Rouxel, intercuts footage of Green's last days with shots of trees being cleared.
It aims to demonstrate how the timber, pulp and palm oil industries are ruining natural resources the world over.
It is believed Indonesia was covered in 160 million hectares in the 1950s.
Now, just 48 million hectares remain."
Is there any other reason needed for people to make a choice about what products they buy and if the "Truth in labeling" bill was passed as proposed by Nick Xenaphon and Bob Brown that made it compulsory for manufacturers to list "Palm Oil" as exactly that and not hide behind the label "vegetable oil" you could be confident of your decision to buy or not!
