Orangutans Discovered in Borneo

Tuesday, April 16th, 2013

A previously unknown population of 200 rare and endangered orangutans was spotted in Batang Park in Borneo.

All of the subspecies of Bornean orangutans are endangered and only 3,000 to 4,500 individuals of the severely threatened subspecies Pongo pygmaeus pygmaeus are left.  Two thousand of those live in the Batang Ai National Park and the Lanjak Entimau Wildlife Sanctuary in Malaysia.

Another Good Reason to Legalize Marijauna!

Thursday, April 4th, 2013

Want another good reason to legalize marijauna? Do it for the endangered Fishers. According to The Associated Press in an article written on March 31, 2013, endangered Fishers are being poisoned by illegal pot growers! These illegal growers are lining the pot plantation fields within national parks, national forests, and Native American reservations around California with rat poisons, poisoning the rats and thus poisoning the  Fishers who eat the dead rats. I don’t know about you, but that’s enough of a reason for me!
