Orangutan-FactsThe students have been learning about orangutans and deforestation over the past few weeks and were very excited to let Dan and Will know they were having a big fund raiser at school to raise money for the orangutans.  “Everything is going to be orange for the day !”, said Melissa Fardella, one of the Year 2 teachers.

The kids in the Year 2 class did an AMAZING job at making the inside of their classroom resemble the forest canopy with green sheets and netting as well as leaves and branches filled with orangutan facts and posters that the students had made.

Daniel and William also spoke about a new website called ‘Global Forest Watch‘, launched by the Jane Goodall Institute, that monitors and tracks global deforestation and forest growth, in real time, so you can monitor all forests around the world and is a brilliant teaching tool for anyone interested in conservation.

The students all knew a lot about palm oil and even presented the boys with a thank you gift containing palm oil free biscuits and chocolates.

Good luck with your fund raiser this Friday !

World Orangutan Day – 19th August

World Orangutan Day is the 19th August, 2015 and we would like to encourage everyone around the world to do just two things;

  1. Raise awareness that our closest cousin (the Orangutan) is critically endangered and that we (humans) are destroying their forest at a rate of 300 football fields an hour, 24 hours a day.
  2. Raise funds to help support AMAZING organisations such as The Orangutan Project’s Safeguard Program to help protect the orangutan’s habitat to make sure they have a home for the future.

World Orangutan Day

Your support is CRITICAL, not just for the orangutans but for humanity.  If we are unable to save a species which is on the brink of extinction and so close to our own DNA, what hope have we got for our children and generations to come?

Make a donation to The Orangutan Project Safeguard Program or hold an ‘ORANGE DAY’ at your work and donate the funds raised to your local orangutan charity.

Please, for all of our sake, do something….
