Great times ahead: this November be #OuAware14

Exciting times are coming up!

Although November seems far away, time goes quickly… So when is Orangutan Awareness Week 2014?!

 

This year’s Orangutan Awareness Week will be held 10th-16th of November, with ORANGE DAY on the 12th (the Wednesday – as always).

We are already sending schools materials and the orange costumes are getting an Autumn clean. Our ambassadors are putting up posters and we really can’t wait to see everyone’s efforts in 2014 to help save orangutans.

It is important to dedicate a week to raising awareness and raising funds. It is a time where all and any communities can come together and do small and big things to support the safeguarding of Indonesian Bornean habitat. All funds raised will go towards the conservation of orangutans in critical orangutan habitat. Our work prioritises conservation of standing forests and local capacity building to ensure orangutans and amazingly diverse habitat are protected into the future. See some ideas and stories of our Awareness Weeks here!

We’ll be collecting all the photos of YOU, fun-loving public having a good time for orangutans, so please stay in touch – see all the fun on facebook too!

Be orange, be daring, have fun, and swing towards helping…
