It began as Orangutan Awareness Week but it soon became apparent that just being aware of the plight of orangutans was not enough. We need to care...and care enough to be moved to action to save these incredible red-haired apes and their rainforest homes.
We need to express our concern and create positive change through activities and initiatives that go beyond mere talk. Action is needed to save the orangutans and their rainforest homes.
