Welcome to the Global Animal Protection Society!
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” – Gandhi
An orphaned baby orangutan sits waiting to be fed in an enclosure that is crowded. The care center only has enough resources to either feed the baby or build a bigger home.
An orphaned baby elephant trumps, but is it in anticipation of being fed or because it doesn’t have enough room to be comfortable? Again, limited resources force the care center to either feed the baby or build a bigger enclosure.
An orphaned lion cub gives a great roar, well a great roar for a cub but more of a meow. Is the call in anticipation of being fed or a warning to the other cubs that it needs some personal space? Once again limited resources force the care center operator to choose between feeding the orphans or building a bigger home.
Everyday this scenario plays out at animal care centers around the world. From Borneo to Africa, directors must decide how best to spend the limited resources they have. Just like Charlie at the Orangutan Foundation International’s care center in Borneo these orphaned babies must be; housed, fed and given health care. And more are arriving everyday!
In Borneo the orangutan’s habitat is being slashed and burned for plantations. The parents are killed by plantation operations and then the babies are left to die or rescued like Charlie.
In Africa adult elephants are killed for their ivory and then the babies are left to fend for themselves, the lucky ones are rescued.
