The Palm Oil Conga

Ashley’s new song “Palm Oil Conga” tells the story of the great oil palm – where it’s found, how it’s used, its impact on animals and the environment, and how we can help tackle unsustainable palm oil production.


The growing oil palm industry and unsustainable production of palm oil is one of the biggest threats facing the forests and wildlife of Borneo and Sumatra – and demand is increasing.

Forest habitats are being lost, animals are losing their homes and carbon is being released into the atmosphere, contributing to global warming.

Despite its serious themes and wordy slogans, writing and recording this tune (with the help of Daniel J Logan and Christopher Harvey) was an absolute hoot, and we can’t wait to share it!

Palm Oil Conga will be released later this year, but in the meantime, find out how you can help protect wildlife and the environment by tackling the issue of unsustainable palm oil production.

You can still check out my last Chester Zoo collaboration, “Sing for Songbirds“, and support the Act for Wildlife campaign to save endangered songbirds.

Speak soon,
