The actress has also launched a campaign to protect the
Bornean rainforest and its endangered species.

That’s right, this 84-year old bad*ss isn’t only saving the
world for villains, but also from deforestation!

According to The Telegraph, she was apparently charmed by a “tiny

The documentary comes as a wakeup call with the planet undergoing what is now called ‘Climate Crisis’ where mass deforestation is a contributing factor.

WWF-Malaysia reports that there are about 11,000 orangutans left in Sabah today. The population of the gentle ape has declined by over 40% in the last 20 years mainly due to planned conversion of forests to plantations.
