“Saving one baby has regrown these rainforests “

One humble man + one sick baby orangutan
Willie Smit could not forget the sick baby orangutan he saw during his walk at the market. That night he went back to the market area and heard a noise from the trash area and there was the baby orangutan. He took it home and that was the beginning of how the plight of this baby not only changed his life, but the lives of an entire community. By the way, it saved the rainforest and economy in this area as well. Go Willie!
This model with local modifications may transform the world.

The success -the Samboja Project. Please watch and save something in the area you live. Thanks Willie from Mother Nature and all of us for caring and acting to help.

Inspiring video for the ages! Thanks TED for inviting inspiring presenters and freely sharing their experience with all of us.
