This piece is part of a world mural tour to raise awareness about wildlife conservation. Pig-tailed macaques are used in coconut farming. They are intentionally bred and trained often with punishment to harvest coconuts. Unfortunately, the monkeys are always tethered to their handler and are not living their natural life.
Unfortunately, I got a chance to witness and see for myself monkey at work. It was heartbreaking to see him on a chain climbing the palms and twisting the coconuts with his bare hands. The whole process seemed very tiring even to watch.
Monkeys don’t have to be used in coconut farms. Humans can perform this task, either by climbing the trees themselves or using long sticks. This is what is being done at Wonderland Healing Centre, where this mural is painted.
Make a conscious effort by sticking to only those brands which are not tested on animals. Below is a list of companies that DO NOT Use Monkeys AND are Fair-Trade. You can also aid to various non-profit agencies like the Israeli Primate Sanctuary, one of the most renowned primate-conservation societies.
Choose your coconut products wisely.
Native Pacific “Banaban” (Queensland)
Ojio (Ultimate Superfoods)
Sanso-Boeki LLC (Japan)
Better Body Foods
Big Tree Farms
Coconut Magic (Australia)
La Tourangelle Artisan Oils
If there is a particular brand that you are unsure about, feel free to email or call them to ask how their coconuts are sourced.
