Orangutan Awareness Week

Orangutan Awareness Week - 12th to 18th November 2017

Orangutan Awareness Week takes place every November to draw attention to the challenges faced by the critically endangered orangutan and their rainforest home.

The week encourages people to support orangutan conservation. To achieve the widest possible UK participation, the Orangutan Foundation names one day of each Orangutan Awareness Week as Orange for Orangutan Day© – a time then groups and individuals can demonstrate how much they care, by adding orange zest to everyday life.

Orange for Orangutan Day© will take place on Wednesday 15th November

Past ideas have included cake sales, orangutan-themed tea parties, dressing in orange, and even bathing in baked beans… so the sky really is the limit! Read about the 2016 Orangutan Awareness Week.

Join in, get others to follow your lead, raise vital funds and have some fun at the same time!

The money raised will protect the habitat of the critically endangered orangutan.
