9th to 15th November

This year's Orangutan Awareness Week runs from Monday 9th November to Sunday 15th November. This means that Orange for Orangutan Day© is on Wednesday 11th of November this year.

This is your chance to ‘go orange’ and inject some orange zest into your day however you'd like, all to raise vital funds for orangutans and their rainforest home.

Past ideas have included cake sales, dressing in orange, orangutan-themed tea parties and even bathing in baked beans… so the sky really is the limit!
