The plan to kill orangutans 滅絕紅毛猩猩計畫 Rudi Patra with Avaaz.org

文字-A A +A

好奇寶寶信箱裡來了主旨是這樣的信:The plan to kill orangutans,

I live and work in the last place on Earth where endangered orangutans, rhinos, elephants, and tigers still roam together -- but it'll be bulldozed to bits unless our President hears our call and steps in to save this unique habitat.

Right now in one of Indonesia's most pristine and untouched forests, a local Governor wants to let mining and palm oil companies move in to decimate areas the size of a million football fields! And the national Forestry Ministry looks like it might let him unless the President steps in to reject this orangutan-killing plan.

We know the President wants to be seen as a keen conservationist, but we need to tell him his green reputation and possible future UN aspirations are on the line to ensure he does the right thing. We need to act fast -- sign the urgent petition and tell everyone about this mortal threat to our majestic forest. If a million people sign in the next 3 days, I'll ensure the President hears us:

很長的信是說這是地球上最後一個瀕臨絕種的紅毛猩猩、老虎、犀牛、大象自由遨遊的所在。但是開礦公司、大型農業公司要將雨林撕裂成碎片。如果有百萬民眾在這三天內願意呼籲印尼總統,將電鋸停下來,我們可以解救這個珍貴的自然棲地。請參與連署。。。

什麼是orangutans?  google翻譯是紅毛猩猩,他長什麼樣子?

這些僅是google圖片的一小部分,從網站旁邊的拉把看只是四分之一而已,我點進其中一篇:

看到是以「三隻小紅毛猩猩」的文章,作者關懷動物園內紅毛猩猩的處境,看到三隻紅毛猩猩相依相偎不肯分開的情形,聯想到自家小孩養育的狀況。。。

The Three Little Orangutans

看不下去了,到處是老掉牙的故事,1987年我到華盛頓市去玩,參觀博物館時就看到呼籲解救非洲雨林的大型展覽,現在2013年非洲雨林不知道剩下多少,輪到印尼解救雨林;而臺灣也為了蓋房子要動千年老茄苳!人類無論處何處,似乎就只有自己!我很想說『去X吧!』全世界只剩下『人』類一個物種好了,其它的物種只剩下『經濟作物』,為『人』服務。而人也只有有權的人才是『人』!今天這個總統上來,明天下去了就去關;還在位的總統,做什麼都事對了!臺灣人才要上學,體制不准,等新加坡上門來搶人時,才說一定要留下這個人!而不思考體制上出了什麼問題!!!而有權的人是相對的,可以是家裡雇用外勞的人;可以是醫院內花花班表制訂護士排班的管理人員;也許有人說我也是沒辦法。。。為了保住有競爭力、為了飯碗、為了。。。什麼時候我們才會說從我開始,尊重所有生物、尊重比我弱勢的族群。。。什麼時候,『人』本思想,可以擴大到不但仁『民』也愛『物』!

不說了!如果我們簽署吧!

Dear friends,

 

It's the last place on Earth where endangered orangutans, tigers, rhinos and elephants roam free together. But mining companies and big agriculture want to rip the rainforest to shreds. If a million people call on Indonesia’s President to silence the chainsaws in the next three days, we can save this precious habitat. Sign now:

I know these forests well -- I've been working as a conservation manager here since 2007, and received the Future for Nature Award 2013 for my work protecting large mammals in Sumatra, especially rhinos. This place holds the largest biodiversity in all of the Asia Pacific region, and parts of it are classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. But this new mining company-backed plan would lay waste to much of it, and would also threaten local communities with deadly landslides and flash floods! And if their habitat is destroyed it could decimate the last few orangutans, tigers, elephants and rhinos.

Two years ago, the President set up a national task force on deforestation, and signed a two-year logging moratorium after out of control slash and burn logging landed Indonesia in the global news as one of the top greenhouse gas emitters in the world. Thankfully, reports say the President has agreed to renew the moratorium this week, which has been a life insurance policy for so many critically endangered species. But even with the renewal, the Governor of Aceh could still rezone broad swathes of the rainforest for logging unless the President intervenes. The President has only a year and a half left in office, with some saying he’s hoping to transition into a top job at the United Nations, and we just want him to stick to his word. “Forests are so dear to my heart ... losing our tropical rainforests would constitute the ultimate national, global and planetary disaster,” our president told other world leaders at a recent conference.

Mega-palm oil companies would love nothing more than to rip these trees from the ground, and the East Asia Minerals Corporation, based in Canada, was just found working behind the scenes to push through this plan! Countries like mine have a right to develop, but not at the expense of our priceless natural patrimony, and it should benefit, not harm, Indonesians.

Let’s tell the President there is an easy solution -- step in to stop this forest-killing plan. Sign now and tell everyone -- we don’t have long before the mining company invasion. Then if you’re on Twitter, send our Twitter-loving President a direct message after you sign:

As an Avaaz member I've seen this community come together to protect forests and critically endangered species, from the Amazon in Ecuador and Brazil to elephants ahttp://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2013/apr/17/mining-indonesian-forestnd rhinos threatened by poaching. Now it’s Indonesia’s turn -- join us in saving this magical forest.

With hope,

Rudi Putra in Indonesia, with the whole Avaaz team
