Write a Letter

Can you write? Do you love orangutans? Then we need you!

For some time now TOP has been unsuccessfully trying to get the attention of the Government to help with helping Indonesia and the Orangutans.

We need more letters to bring this issue to the attention of our elected representatives.

Some ideas for your letter may include:

  • What is the Government is doing to stop the imminent extinction of the Orangutan.
  • What is our Government doing to ensure that Timber is labeled with country of origin so we don't unwittingly buy Indonesian and Malaysian rainforest trees.
  • What is our Government doing to ensure that we are not unwillingly buying and eating Palm Oil. Large tracts of rainforest are being destroyed daily to make way for new Palm Oil plantations.
  • We have put together a letter writing kit regarding the mandatory labeling of Palm Oil. Download it here
  • Please send copies of any replies received to TOP, contact us so that we can monitor any promises made by Government.
