Abstract : The recent conversion of land to oil palm crops has produced catastrophic effects in Southeast Asia. Shocking images of orangutans left with no home, together with health awareness campaigns, have already reduced the consumption of palm oil-based products, and steered food companies towards product lines “palm oil free”. But will this be enough to preserve primates populations?
