The Idea

We're building a new orangutan rescue center in Ketapang, Indonesia and we know of around 60 orangutans in need of rescue. Most of them are in remote Dayak river villages that are only accesible by boat. Speedboats are expensive to rent so we want to buy our own. This will allow us to move quickly.

The Specifics

Orangutan Outreach is helping to build a state-of-the-art Orangutan Rescue Center in Ketapang, West Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo). We know of nearly 60 orangutans waiting to be rescued. They are being held as illegal pets and are being trafficked in illegal smuggling networks. These orangutans will most likely die if they are not properly cared for by trained vets. If they get too big they will be killed & eaten. We need to rescue them NOW. The problem is many of these orphaned orangutans are in remote villages many hours away by boat. It costs a fortune to rent a speedboat & captain, so we want to have our own boat. The boat will pay for itself after 5 or 6 trips... and it will allow us to save precious orangutan lives...

Stop using Palm Oil as it is killing many of these beautiful Red Ape's. Read Labels or google. Easy enough. I have them all in my head.

I have also adopted a baby Red Ape and pay a small amount each month for the care. We can't lose thee animals to Palm Oil.

You get my vote. Just wish people would realize the impact of their daily purchases and boycott anything made with palm oil. I do - better for my health and, more importantly, better for the environment.

Good on you guys for thinking laterally and minimising your costs so you can help more animals! Without this kind of intervention, the orangutans will be gone in our lifetime.
