Palm oil… some uses

• Bread, cakes, breakfast cereals and ready meals, as well as ice cream, margarine and crisps.

• Unlike oil seed rape and sunflower oils palm oil is valued because it is solid at room temperature. Palm oil is also cheaper than other types of oils.

• New source of fuel for our transport known as bio fuel.

Endangered or extinct

• Endangered (endangered species)• A species is endangered when there are very

few individuals left and there is a risk that the species will become extinct.

• Extinction (extinct species)• Extinction is when there are non of a

particular species left on earth.

Page 18: Conservation In Borneo

Some of the endangered species at risk of extinction

• Sumatran tiger, Asian Elephant and the Orangutans of Borneo.

• 98% of the Indonesian forest is expected to be destroyed by 2022.

• At the moment there are between 55,000 and 60,000 Orangutans in Borneo but 5,000 to 10,000 orangutans are killed each year.

• Orangutans could be extinct within 15 years.
