It Doesn’t Have to Be This Way

Your gift will help save the orangutan

These images are the heart-breaking reality of the impact of habitat loss.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Illegal encroachers are a massive threat to the future of the orangutan. Please help us stop them before it’s too late.

Last year we asked you to help us secure vital orangutan habitat – and you did! Together we protected an extra 93,900 acres of rainforest in the Bukit Tigapuluh ecosystem, creating a critically important sanctuary for the 170 released orangutans who call it home. Thank you!   

But whilst we’ve taken a massive step forward, we are still far short of the 445,000 acres and 2,000 wild orangutans we need under our permanent protection if we are to secure this gentle species from extinction.

And we are still battling day and night with illegal land encroachers, who surround our buffer zone and will not stop while there’s jungle left to plunder.

But we’re not stopping either.

Scientists Now Believe the Universe Itself May Be Conscious

A new scientific concept has recently come to light, which scientists are calling “panpsychism.” Panpsychism says that the universe could be capable of consciousness, which could change everything.

For quite some time, scientists have been working to understand the universe, where it came from, and why we are here. However, they have often come up short until now. The scientist responsible for such a notion is Gregory Matloff, and his ideas are shocking, to say the least.

According to Matloff, a physicist at New York City College of Technology, in his recently published paper, humans could be like the rest of the universe, in substance and in spirit. Futurism reported that a “proto-consciousness field” could extend throughout all space. Basically, in lamens terms, the entire cosmos could be self-aware.

Virou lei na França: telhado verde e painel solar são obrigatórios em prédios comerciais

Soluções sustentáveis para as cidades são mais do que nunca necessárias.

A concentração de pessoas, veículos, empresas, comércios e indústrias tornam as nossas cidades mais poluídas, e isso acarreta em menor qualidade de vida para todos nós.

Podemos contar nos dedos quais centros urbanos que ainda possuem ar puro para se respirar.

Quais cidades não passam pelo processo de corte de árvores? Quantas obras chamadas de “revitalização” estão destruindo a fauna e a flora local para dar lugar a empreendimentos?

Portanto, é para ficarmos felizes com uma noticia destas: Paris, a capital da França, adotou uma medida que pode ser um pequeno grão na mudança que precisamos.

Agora é Lei na cidade que os prédios comerciais tenham telhados verdes ou placas solares.
