November 11 – 17 is Orangutan Caring Week.

Rapid deforestation is occurring across the world and the habitat of the orangutan is disappearing in huge swathes across Borneo and Sumatra.

As part of the worldwide Orangutan Caring Week, The Orangutan Project today launches ‘Orango Tango’, a national fundraising campaign designed to build a critical mass of concerned voices to focus attention on the species through the efforts of public supporters. Orango Tango will run until June 30, 2013.

The campaign has been launched to address the worldwide destroying of orangutan habitat, which is bringing the imminent extinction of the species closer to reality.

Supporters are invited to participate in the user-driven campaign, where they have the option of making a pledge to raise funds towards one of The Orangutan Project’s on-the-ground projects. Funds raised will enable more resources to be allocated to where they are desperately needed in order to protect remaining forest and care for the thousands of orphan orangutans that end up in care centres.

“Now more than ever the orangutans and remaining habitat need our support, to prevent the large scale destruction occurring by palm oil companies across Sumatra and Borneo,” says Leif Cocks, President of The Orangutan Project.

The Orangutan Project is seeking to raise another $740,000 of funding to increase its work in the next year. Participants are able to setup their own personal page and invite supporters to join their quest!

It’s TIME to Orango Tango!

The orangutans need US NOW! There is NO time left for them, so there is NO time to lose, make your pledge and raise your funds from now until June 30, 2013!
