Rainforest Action Network

Today is Halloween, and I’m here to tell you a frightening tale… Deep in the heart of the rainforest, you can find orange and black creatures like tigers and orangutans, but something dangerous is coming for them. The forests are being set on fire, and these animals are running for their lives as the bulldozers close in on them. The scariest part of this story is that it’s real, it’s happening right now, and it’s happening to produce candy and other treats.

Nearly 300,000 tons of Halloween candy have been purchased for Halloween this year, and the Conflict Palm Oil lurking inside it has contributed to the loss of 100,000 wild orangutans in less than 20 years. Conflict Palm Oil is haunting EVERY.SINGLE.GROCERY.STORE. How frightening is that? And unlike your average ghost, you can’t get away from it, including your Halloween candy!

Don’t let Conflict Palm Oil destroy the home of creatures great and small. Costumes of tigers and orangutans are adorable, but these animals need your help in real life, and they need it fast.

Give any amount NOW to protect orangutan habitat!

Clint, we’ve been fighting against Conflict Palm Oil for years. What we’re doing is working, and we won’t stop fighting until the terror of Conflict Palm Oil expansion is brought to an end.


In fact, just within the last few weeks, your online activism and support has brought about huge milestones in ending Conflict Palm Oil: Nestlé and Musim Mas have dropped Conflict Palm Oil producer, Indofood — a company known for its egregious human rights violations and rainforest destruction.

But there’s more work to do.

Donate now

Clint, only 4% of the supporters within our network are donors — can you imagine how much faster we could move against rainforest destruction if another 4% of our supporters donated? Will you help? Today, I’m asking you to put on a super-cape for Halloween, and stand up for those who can’t fight for themselves. We’re in a fight for the survival of critically endangered species, and they need YOU to end this terrible tale of destruction.

Ghosts and goblins might not be real, but the impact your donation has for the long-term survival of wild orangutans is as real as it gets. Please, make any size one time donation, or consider starting a $10 monthly donation  — monthly donors are the heroes we depend on for long-term campaign power.

For orangutans,
