Orangutans fight for their survival on a protected island
Sumatran orangutans are designated as Critically Endangered by the IUCN, with a population of just a few thousand, while the Borneo orangutan is considered Threatened. The UN calls the current status of the remaining orangutans “a conservation emergency.” Habitat destruction caused by the massive expansion of palm oil plantations is a primary reason orangutans are facing the threat of extinction. http://ran.org/indonesia%E2%80%99s-rainforests-biodiversity-and-endangered-species
cindy sherman. THIS is the first photo by cindy sherman that i ever saw. my professor pointed out the clicker under her show and from then on i tried to find it in every shot. something about this shot is so rosie the riveter yet has an abused and grimy feel to it.
Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart, my intuition, the senses of my body, the blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my sacred space and love beyond my fear, and thus walk in balance with the passing of each glorious sun. ~Lakota prayer
