On the hike up to see the Sumatran Wildlife Sanctuary, Panut (founder of @orangutaninformationcentre ) points out encroaching West African Palm plantations in nearby fields. One of the many instances that displayed just how severe the impact of palm oil in Sumatra really was.⠀
The Sumatran Wildlife Sanctuary sits on the edge of the Gunung Leuser ecosystem, half of which is a protected national park. ⠀
Come on in to The Natural Path in downtown Downers Grove on Saturday July 29 between 10am - 3pm to chat with me about my experience in Sumatra and view some of my photographic prints on display and for sale. ⠀
The show serves as a fundraiser for the SWS as well as a book drive to supply english literature and cash donations to cover shipping of books to a small school in northern Sumatra.

Less than 500 Sumatran elephants exist in the wild today. Because of deforestation and illegal poaching, their homes have been destroyed, lives taken, and overall numbers have dwindled down to the point of being critically endangered. ⠀
The largest proponent of these issues is thanks to the booming palm oil industry in Sumatra. Indonesia is the largest producer of palm oil in the world, with it's western island of Sumatra being one of the two hot spots falling victim to a natural ecosystem collapse.⠀
Places like the Sumatran Wildlife Sanctuary are becoming necessary to ensure the future of a wild Sumatra, and the generation of future stewards must be educated and inspired enough to tackle the challenges ahead. ⠀
Visit The Natural Path in downtown Downers Grove this Saturday from 10am - 3pm where I will have prints for sale to benefit the SWS and a book drive accepting children's book donations and suggested $1 donation per book to help shipping. ⠀
Print proceeds will be donated to the Sumatran Wildlife Sanctuary and books will be donated to a small school teaching english to future generations of Sumatra's protectors. Let's inspire together and build a brighter, healthier future for Sumatra!
