2. The story of the orangutan is attached to these products

You may be familiar with this image of an orangutan running up the trunk of a recently destroyed tree towards an excavator destroying the forest and its habitat. The animal tries to chase the shovel, without success. The orangutan falls, is stunned by a gunshot and deported.

Looking at this image, the question arises: what are the rights of nature? What are the rights of those who cannot speak for themselves? Or in this case, when the orangutan communicates, why don’t we listen?

The story of the orangutan seems like a “distant” story, somewhere in a tropical land far beyond the horizon. But we are bound to this story. Chances are the orangutan forest has given way to an oil palm plantation, an unnatural monoculture in which there is no longer room for biodiversity.

Every time we walk into a supermarket, chances are we’ll walk away with palm oil. Palm oil is present in almost everything: cookies, candies, chips, soft drinks, margarine, cosmetics, shampoo, ice cream, cleaning products, etc. The story of the orangutan is attached to these products, which you will not find on the packaging of a Snicker.

Since 1970, 70% of all terrestrial fauna has disappeared and nearly 50% of all animals in the oceans. The devastation goes on and on, no one to stop us.

The story of the orangutan inspired us to create the game jungle hero in which the players themselves restore the rainforest and bring back the wild animals. Through in-game purchases, the game also plants real trees by supporting resettlement programs.
