During WWII, scientists noticed a lot of orphan babies dying, even though, they were receiving all their recommended food, milk and vitamins.
What they found was that these babies weren’t receiving enough physical human contact. They were rarely held let alone hugged. We need nurturing as much as air to actually survive. This is the reason why when babies are born, they immediately place the baby on your bare chest, that skin-to-skin bonding is essential to our well being.
Which is more the reason this video of an orphaned orangutan breaks my heart. The little guy tries to hug himself over and over because he has no one else to nurture him. So sad.
Thousands of orangutans (elephants, tigers, any animal that lives in the woods/jungle!) are in danger with the implosion of palm oil farming. Palm oil is the #1 reason for deforestation these days…and it’s in so many products!
