Happy World Orangutan Day!

In order to show our love for orangutans, we celebrate World Orangutan Day on 19th August each year, to encourage everyone to take action to protect this amazing species in the wild.

There is no better day to make a commitment to help orangutans and protect their rainforest home.

Please spread the word to your family and friends. Together we can help to save orangutans.

Just some of the ways you can help …
• say no to palm oil
• foster an orphan orangutan
• make a donation to support our work
• wear orange today and make sure you tell everyone why

To commemorate this auspicious day, we are excited to join with Orangutan Alliance and Earth Offline’s Blane Edwards to bring you this Eco Impacters Podcast interview with our very own Dr Biruté Mary Galdikas, celebrating 50 Years in the Field.
