Two baby orangutans play at the Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation (BOS). The species, which is already endangered, is being pushed to the brink of extinction by the expansion of palm oil and pulp and paper plantations.

Our campaign to get Nestlé to stop using palm oil from forest-destroying producers keeps making waves. Today, media in Poland, Malysia and Belgium ran stories on our action last week - and Nestlé's response to it, which is widely seen as rather ill-advised (as the Miami Herald points out again today). If you haven't seen the hugely popular Kit Kat video that's causing all the buzz (700 000 visits and counting), watch it here - and spread it.

Prunerov chimney climbers cause a stir

Czech media have widely reported yesterday’s Greenpeace action at the Prunerov power station in the Czech Republic. As we wrote here yesterday, twelve Greenpeace activists climbed the coal-fired plant's 300m chimney and hung a banner saying: “Global Shame”. Check the video of our activists published by online paper Novinky. A collection of videos shot by our climbers can also be seen here.

Otakar Tucek, the plant's director, wasn't happy at all yesterday. "This is the third time," he told the Denik newspaper, referring to Greenpeace actions targeting Prunerov in 2007 and 2009. Radio Australia, meanwhile, invited Lagi Toribau of Greenpeace Australia Pacific to discuss the role of Micronesia - a small Pacific state that wants to stop the coal-fired plant out of concerns over climate change.

Our activists climbed down again in the night from Monday to Tuesday, but the message was clearly out there.

Argentinian river turns green

In Buenos Aires, meanwhile, the Riachuelo River turned green. Watch the slide shows on China's Daily Online and Argentinia's La Nacion to see how Greenpeace activists dyed the river - one of the world's most polluted - in a protest to mark World Water Day. On the same day the United Nations said that more people die from unsafe water that from all forms of violence, including war, we called for policies that would finally clean the river - and sustain it for future generations (as reported by Spain's La Razon).
