OFI Australia will be walking for orangutans in this year’s Bridge to Brisbane on Sunday 26 August! The course takes in some of Brisbane’s most iconic landmarks including running over the Story Bridge and finishing at the beautiful South Bank Parklands. This is a great family friendly event for all ages and abilities and it will help us raise vital funds for our conservation efforts in Borneo. We are aiming to raise over $10,000 this year so we really hope you’ll join us to help make this happen!
