BENEFITING: ORANGUTAN FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL
Please help me protect orangutans and save their habitat! I've just returned from Borneo, Indonesia where the forest is being devestated for Palm Oil plantations. Adult orangutans are killed and eaten by the local people and the babies are taken as pets (which is illegal) - most of them do not survive. A fortunate few are brought to Dr Birute Galdikas's care center (Orangutan Foundation International) where she has been successfully raising them to be released into protected forest. There are 300 + orphans under her care at this very moment. OFI desparately needs funding so they can continue to rescue the babies and purchase land for their future.
