Pagi itu kusambut hangatnya sinar mentari. Tapi sayangnya pemandangan di sekitarku tidak membuatku bahagia. Tahu mengapa? Karena aku melihat keadaan di sekelilingku yang tandus dan gersang. Bukit dan hutan yang dulunya hijau sekarang terlihat menyedihkan. Pohon-pohon banyak yang sudah di tebang sembarangan oleh manusia. Aku sedih, mengapa manusia begitu tega dan tidak menyanyangi ciptaan Tuhan yang menjadi sumber penghidupan mereka. Tidakkah mereka tahu bahwa menebang pohon secara tidak bijaksana berarti mempertaruhkan hidup mereka sendiri? Tahu mengapa ku berkata demikian? Karena menebang pohon sembarangan berarti membuat masalah besar yaitu bisa terjadi banjir dimana-mana dan bencana alam bisa datang tanpa terkira. Hutan merupakan sumber daya alam yang maha penting untuk kehidupan manusia dan makhluk Tuhan yang lain seperti hewan. Tidak mengelolahnya dengan bijaksana, berarti hutan tidak dapat terus memberi penghidupan kepada anak cucu mereka. Tidakkah mereka sadar akan hal itu? Malam ini aku terduduk sendiri di atas pohon sambil memandangi keadaan di sekitarku. Aku tidak suka melihat keadaan disekelilingku. Aku tidak akan bisa bermain di bukit lagi. Aku berkhayal tentang masa lalu yang sangat indah. Pada saat itu aku sedang bermain-main bersama teman-temanku. Alangkah bahagia aku saat itu. Tapi itu tidak akan terjadi lagi karena bukit itu sudah menjadi tandus. Jika bukit itu sudah menjadi gersang, maka orang-orang yang tinggal di sekitarnya tidak akan peduli lagi. Nasibku benar-benar sial. Hidupku dan hidup teman-temanku terancam punah. Begitu pula nasib si harimau, si singa, si kelinci hutan, si rusa, si kijang, apalagi si orang utan. Kami terancam punah untuk selama-lamanya dan tidak akan ada keturunan kami yang dapat hidup di hutan yang rusak. Begitu juga nasib pohon-pohon. Mereka akan habis karena ulah manusia yang tega menebang mereka dengan liar. Kalau pohon-pohon bisa bicara, pasti mereka juga akan menjerit. Tapi pohon diciptakan hanya untuk hidup tapi tidak dapat bergerak dan tidak bisa protes terhadap perbuatan manusia yang sewenang-wenang. Ternyata aku tahu apa maksud manusia menebang pohon seenaknya saja. Mereka ingin kaya dengan cepat dari hasil hutan yang di expor ke negara lain dan malas memikirkan kelanjutan hutan bagi kehidupan generasi setelah mereka. Uang, uang, uang dan uang yang manusia inginkan. Dengan uang mereka kira mereka kira mereka bisa hidup selamanya. Mereka tidak mendengar jeritan penghuni hutan yang merasa habitatnya dihancurkan. Bagi mereka masa depan orang lain tidaklah berarti apa-apa, asalkan mereka bisa senang sekarang. Sungguh serakah manusia seperti itu. Saat ini hanya berdoa dan berpasrah pada Tuhan lah yang bisa aku lakukan. Pohon-pohon tidak bisa berbuat apa-apa. Teman-temanku tidak bisa melakukan apa-apa. Aku pun demikian, apalah yang bisa aku perbuat? Aku hanya seekor tupai yang tidak berdaya. Akupun bisa terbunuh karena ulah manusia. Aku hanya bisa berharap bahwa masih ada manusia yang baik yang peduli akan kehidupan hutan dan habitatnya. Aku berharap masih ada yang akan melakukan reboisasi. Aku berharap untuk tidak lagi mendengar suara gergaji mesin menumbangkan pohon-pohon. Aku akan menunggu dan menunggu, sampai hutan kembali lebat, bukit-bukit kembali hijau dan populasi teman-temanku bertambah banyak. Semoga manusia sadar atas apa yang telah mereka perbuat terhadap penghuni hutan. Agar mereka tidak sewenang-wenang dalam mengambil kekayaan hutan. Aku ingin kehidupan menjadi damai kembali dimana manusia, hewan dan tumbuhan saling menjaga dan menyayangi. Alangkah indah dan bahagianya kehidupan demikian. Semoga saja masih bisa terwujud.

CONVERSE OUR ENVIRONMENT  [sic -- I think they mean 'conserve'] (see Bahasa Indonesia)
This morning I feel the warm of the sun light. But the view around me does not make me feel happy. Do you know why? It is because the land around me is empty and dry. The hills and forest that used to be very beautiful, now seem very bad. The trees were cutted randomly by human. I am so sad, why those human like to cut those trees without any guilty feeling. Why don’t they love the nature that has became their source of life.

Don’t they know that cutting the trees unwisely will damage their own life in the future? Do you know why I say that ? Because cutting the trees carelessly may cause big problems, it will make flood every where and natural disaster may come unexpectedly. Forest is the important natural resource for human life and either the other God’s creatures such as animals. If it’s not manage wisely, the forest unable to support continuously for the next generation. Don’t they realize that ?

Tonight I am sitting on a tree branch watching around. I don’t like to see what I see around me. I am not be able to play on the hill anymore. I am imagining the beautiful situation few years ago. When I still could play with my friends. How happy I was at that time. But now, it cannot happen anymore, because the hill is now dry. The human who live nearby don’t take too much attention about the hill and the forest.

My fate is realy bad. My life and my friend’s life are threatening destroy. So are the life of tigers, lions, rabbits, wild deer, antelope, monkeys, and especially orang utan. We are all threatening destroy, and there will not be any of our generation that can live in the damaged forest. And also the fate of the trees, if they could talk, they will also screaming. But trees are created just to live without any capability to move themselves and to protest about what human has done unwisely to them.

Now, I know why human like to cut the forest trees carelessly. They want to be rich quickly by exporting the forestry products to others countries, and lazy to think the sustainability of the forest for the next generation to come. Money, money, and money, that is all what those human always want. With money they think they can live forever. They never want to listen the cry of the forestry animals that have lost their living habitat. For them, other people future don’t mean anything, as long as they can be happy now. They are really greedy. What I can do now are just praying and ask for help from my God. The trees cannot do anything. My friends cannot do anything. I can’t do also, what can i do ? I am just a helpless squirrel, and I can be killed by human. I just wish that there were some human who care and pay attention to what happen to the forest and the habitat inside it. I wish there will some human who run tree replanting program. I wish that I would not wait too long to have the forest become thick, the hill become green, and population of my friends increase.

Hopefully human realize what they have done to the forest and its habitat. Realize not to take the forestry product carelessly. I just wish that the world become peaceful, where human, animals, and tress live side by side and love each other. What a beautiful and happy live it will be. Hopefully it still can be realized.
