Take Action- Orangutans Need YOU!
"What you do makes a difference, but you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make."- Jane Goodall 

 Quick Ways To Help Orangutans

  • Write to your local legislators and The President.  Ask them not to explore palm oil as a biofuel option.  Cutting down rainforests to grow palm oil is not a "green" substitute for gasoline.

  • Write to Indonesian and Malaysian government officials.  Ask them to preserve their precious natural resources. They're the only countries in the world that have wild orangutans!

  • Write your favorite companies that use palm oil and ask them to use sustainable sources when producing their products.  

  • Sign Petitions that promote the lives of orangutans and their rainforest home.

 Donate, Adopt, Purchase & Volunteer!

  • Donating is one of the most beneficial things you can do to help save orangutans. Your donation could help save a life! 

  • Adopting an orangutan though an organization is wonderful! You get fabulous photos, learn their amazing stories, and even get updates on how the orangutan you adopted is doing. 

  • Purchasing stuff from an orangutan organization is fantastic! You get awesome stuff, all while helping save the species!

  • Volunteering is very helpful, and a great learning opportunity. If you're interested in volunteering, contact your favorite orangutan organization.

  • Fundraising is fun and it's a great way to get the message out about the problems facing orangutans.

 Avoid Palm Oil

Palm oil is in over 50% of all products in America...
 From cookies, peanut butter, make-up, shampoos, box goods, candy, and a lot more. The way it is being produced is unsustainable, and causing orangutans (as well as a lot of other species) to go into extinction.
