    Weʼve raised £590 to fund the re-introduction of illegally captured orangutans #backintothewild Sumatra. It's a great way to help save them from extinction.

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    Story

    Human activity such as the illegal pet trade, hunting and land use change is having a significantly negative impact on the survival of our closest biological relatives, the great apes. They play important roles in the livelihoods, cultures, and religions of many societies and offer unique insights into human evolution, biology, behavior, and the threat of emerging diseases. Current information shows the existence of 504 primate species.

    In the latest update to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) Red List of Threatened Species, four out of the six great ape species are critically endangered. This includes the eastern gorilla, western gorilla, Bornean orangutan, the Sumatran Orangutan, with the remaining two great apes namely the chimpanzee and bonobo being listed as endangered.

    On the 2nd April 2017, i am running the Rome Marathon to raise money for the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme and in particular their efforts to re-introduce illegally captured orangutans #backintothewild at the Jantho Orangutan Release Site. They need money NOW to fund translocation teams, transport and medical supplies.

    Please, give an orangutan a second chance of freedom and donate. In return, i will smash each and very one of the 26.2 miles in Rome and hopefully raise loads of awareness for the conservation crisis affecting great apes #backintothewild

    Thank you.

    p.s in a recent scientific publication the impending primate extinction crisis was highlighted and you can read it here http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/1/e1600946

      Just a quick message to thank everyone that donated to the cause. Together we raised a pound for everyone of the 504 primate species recognised today and in the next week i will be sending the money over to the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme SOCP for them to use in their orangutan reintroduction efforts #romemarathon2017 #wesmashedit #backintothewild :)

      Thanks to everyone that's donated so far. It's the night before i run the Rome Marathon for SOCP and their sumatran orangutan reintroduction efforts at Jantho in Sumatra. A few have aaked why i chose this charity...well i ran 3 marathons for Cancer Research UK two years ago and i felt a real desire to do something to try and help Dr Ian Singletons efforts in Sumatra. Find out more about why reintroductions are so important and read this extract from Serg Wich's book. If you can spare anything thank you. Richard
