To save precious animal habitat, palm oil must come from sustainable farms. As a first step, sign the Taranga Zoo petition to call for the labelling of palm oil on food products, so that we can work towards a sustainable solution.
Did you know that palm oil is an ingredient in one in four food products? And that most of the world’s supply comes from Indonesia and Malaysia – including the rainforest home of the endangered Sumatran Tiger.
Check out the Taranga Zoo website for more ideas on how you can help to get better labeling on food products and help animals like the Sumatran Tiger.
Don’t forget that Taranga Zoo is a great day out for kids of all abilities. Studies show animal therapy can truly help kids with special needs. That’s why a trip to the zoo can be quite rewarding. But if you have a child with autism, a day at the zoo may present some challenges. My secret to zoo success is do not try and do everything in one day. There is just too much to see and do. My family are Zoo friends and we can come back as many times during the year as we like. There are also some great places within the zoo that you can go to give both your kids and yourself a break including the Kidzoo.
