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!
