2. JGI Palm Oil Policy

JGI Australia has responded to your requests to develop an official position on the very complex and urgent issue of palm oil.  We’d like to thank everyone who contributed to the policy and, in particular, to the author and volunteer Palm Oil Co-ordinator, Natasha Jane Coutts. As Jane Goodall says, “Together, we are making a difference.”  You can download our palm oil policy here.
3. Solutionary Spotlight- David and William Clarke

JGI Australia’s mission is to create a generation of young people who care about our world and the animals, people and environment who share it. Our young members, who we call solutionaries, solve social, environmental and animal welfare problems to create a humane, peaceful and sustainable future.  This month, we proudly share with you the work of David and William Clarke.

Sydney based brothers Daniel (17) and William (15) are known in the media as “Australia’s most effective orangutan advocates”.  The boys have now set themselves a NEW GOAL by taking on another one of the Great Apes… the chimpanzee.  They have been working closely with JGI to plan a visit to a chimpanzee rehabilitation sanctuary in the Congo and write a second book.  The boys are hoping to raise funds to get them to the Congo and produce the first run of their book.  If you’d like to be a part of their amazing quest you can visit their website, or go directly to their crowd funding website.

4. Shout Your Support!
