As humans, we have been destroying nature and the living spaces of animals. Unfortunately, despite the efforts made by the specialists, social responsibility projects, NGO’s and public service ads, we still continue to demolish everything around us.
A video was taken in 2013 but released in 2018 on the 5th of June, World’s Environment Day. It is a big example of activities of “human nature”, destroying the house of an orangutan. But the heartbreaking part is that the orangutan sees the heavy construction equipment and tries to stop it. Sadly, the orangutan understands its efforts will be meaningless, so slowly leaves to find another place to live.
The fact is even the government of Indonesia promised to protect all the orangutans –just because it is one of the places left the orangutans can hardly survive- the construction activities continue in the places more than 1000 orangutans live. And each year, more than 2,5 million acres of Indonesian rainforest are destroyed.
A “selfish” step is done without thinking about the rest, and “the rest” has critical problems. Not only orangutans but also many more animals have to face the struggles of surviving.
Unfortunately, we see the reflection of what we have done, and later retweet or share these blogs. What happens afterward? Nothing! We continue our behaviors without realizing or not. This is a huge shame not only on the Indonesian government but also for us too.
Let’s create awareness this time, become “responsible” people, and plant a tree before it’s too late! It may seem like a small favor, but it will become a huge one in time.
