Zoos Victoria under fire for anti-palm oil campaign

A corporate-funded think tank has accused the operator of the Melbourne Zoo of using taxpayer funds to run a political campaign.

Zoos Victoria has been collecting signatures to petition for compulsory labelling of palm oil in Australian food products.

The Institute of Public Affairs has released a report which questions the accuracy of the campaign's comments about the palm oil industry's effects on rainforests and orangutan populations.

I agree with what Zoos Victoria has said, they have every right to campaign.

That "think tank" business amuses me. Those people have no idea about what really goes on outside they're humble little office doors. Plus they are heavily biased in their accusations and statements solely because of their sponser's influence...
