Another threat that pri­ma­tes face is exploi­ta­tion in the enter­tain­ment industry ( tele­vi­sion, films, cir­cu­ses, or pho­tos with them prior to payment).

They demand offs­pring for this, which is cruel due to the fact that said offs­pring are acqui­red by killing the mother or sepa­ra­ting them from her at an early age so they are rai­sed by humans to exploit them.

Cele­bri­ties have a big res­pon­si­bi­lity to not con­tri­bu­te to acti­vi­ties that impact wild popu­la­tions, as they are public cha­rac­ters with influen­ce. Many peo­ple follow their idols and repeat their acts.

Never do the same as this famous foot­ball pla­yer (pla­ying recently in the Real Madrid team) who is taking sel­fies with ani­mals in cos­tu­mes or exploi­ted to make money. You won’t be con­tri­bu­ting to their conservation.

Tomo­rrow is the June raf­fle of SOS Pri­ma­tes to bene­fit an orga­ni­za­tion that fights to save oran­gu­tans and their habi­tats, Oran­gu­tan Foun­da­tion.
