Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

I am a friend of Orangutans

I am caring and selfless.
I wonder about orangutans.
I hear hunters shoot their guns.
I see my hut getting destroyed

but I do not give up. I want all animals to be safe.


I am caring and selfless.

I pretend I feel happy but I really am not.
I feel mad that orangutans are endangered.
I touch my machete.
I worry about sick animals.
I cry because we need to stop killing orangutans.

 

I am caring and selfless.

I understand we must act!
I say, “Everybody protect orangutans.”
I dream of no animals being endangered.

I try to protect the babies.
I hope the babies will grow up safe.
I am caring and selfless.
