The swine flu is becoming a pandemic it all started in Mexico then got to the USA, New Zealand, Europe and Australia. In Mexico every school is closed, cinemas and sporting event’s everywhere that you could catch it. Eighty-eight people have died all ready and hundreds in hospital. Swine flu is a combination of pig, bird, and human flu. Every animal has its flu. Pigs can get bird flu and birds can get pig flu. They think a pig had pig flu and caught bird flu then it got the pig had pig flu and caught bird flu then it got the pig/bird flu and also got human flu and that is the deadly swine flu. It is so dangours because we don’t have any amenity for it. There are 61 cases in Australia.
I think it is a huge thing and lot of people could die, because there is so many cases in Australia
This week on BTN we learned about Orang-utans. Every week I will put on a post on my favourite topic. Hope you enjoy.
Orang-utans are just like people orang-utans means people of the forest. Their native habitats are Borneo and Sumatra. The forest there are getting demolished for palm oil. Palm oil is in food, drink and shampoo. More about orang-utans, orang-utang’s arms are two metres long. They eat insets, bark, fruit, leaves. Males have larger cheeks than females. A female has one baby and cares for it for eight years.
All orang-utan’s feet are like hands so they have four hands, that’s pretty cool. In the last twenty years 35% of orang-utans have decreased. There is one good thing about the issue, orang-utans can cope in forests like this. They should take all the orang-utans to another forest or get the workers to look after the orang-utans.
