Marathon des Sable

Skydiving to Help the Orangutan Foundation

Ride for the Wild

Undertaken by one of our first members, Paula Cowie in 1991, why not take up the challenge of a motorcycle ride round the coast of Britain.

Make a giant leap for a great ape – the Orangutan Foundation office took this sky diving challenge a few years and its not one for the faint hearted!
