THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HAD THEIR DONATION DOUBLED TO KEEP FORESTS STANDING!

In two days we raised over £20,000 to support our Habitat Protection programme protecting hundreds of thousands of acres of forest and more than 4,500 critically endangered orangutans.

Our matched giving fund has now been used up and donations are no longer being doubled. If you still intend to donate this festive season then please donate directly to Orangutan Foundation.
