The streets of Pangkalan Bun, Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo were filled with concerned students on Sunday 27th January. Young people, from 11 schools, gathered to raise awareness about Indonesia’s threatened primates. This year’s message was ‘Stop hunting primates’. Orangutan Foundation were proud to support and participate on the day, which included a march and talk. We gave out stickers, calendars and seedlings for planting.
The day was also “car-free” and so many people came by bike or walked into town to join the event.
It was fabulous to see so many young people involved and caring so passionately about their environment and the wildlife that need protecting and conserving. Please donate today to support our work - a future for orangutans, forests and people.
