Orangutan OutreachOrangutan Outreach is a non-profit animal welfare organization whose mission is to protect orangutans in their native habitat while providing care for orphaned and displaced orangutans until they can be returned to their natural environment. It seeks to raise funds and promote public awareness of orangutan conservation issues by collaborating with partner organizations around the world.

As a private organization, they rely on the help of generous members of the community in order to make a difference in the lives of orangutans in need. Interested parties can choose to become adoptive parents to rescued animals for only 30 cents a day. Funds collected for orangutans will be used for medicine, food, equipment, rescue operations, cage repairs and hundreds of other items that are necessary to rehabilitate the orangutans and keep the projects going. Safe credit card donations can also be made via PayPal.

People can also help in saving ape friends through the following:

  • Start a campaign at work or in your school (e.g. to collect money to adopt an orangutan)
  • Call your local newspaper or radio station and tell them about the disastrous situation in Borneo
  • Draw the attention of friends and relatives to this situation and encourage them to change it

The organization can be reached through email at info@redapes.org. The group can also be reached through snail mail at 225 E 76th St., #6F, New York, NY   10021, USA c/o Richard Zimmerman.
