This 2011 file photo from Mlive.com shows Rhiannon Tomtishen of Ann Arbor, Mich., left, and Madison Vorva of Plymouth, Mich. The 16-year-old Girl Scouts began a campaign last year to stop the Girl Scouts’ use of palm oil that they said was being harvested in ways that threatened the habitat of endangered orangutans in Indonesia and Malaysia. On Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012, the United Nations honored the girls with the first-ever International Forest Heroes Award for North America.
