Weʼre raising £1,000 to travel abroad and work with endangered orangutans

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.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
The Bornean orangutan is now critically endangered, with populations in sharp decline due to habitat destruction and illegal hunting.
Orangutans spend 95% of their lives in the trees, but right now, Indonesia’s forests are disappearing at the rate of one football pitch every 25 seconds!! With rainforest clearance continuing and the Indonesian government boasting a projected increase in palm oil production from 36.5m tonnes in 2017 to over 42m tonnes by 2020 we need to take action now. We share 97% of our DNA with these incredible and intelligent creatures.
Orangutans are one of my favourite animals and I want to do my bit and help spread the word.
Any help from you guys would be massively appricated 😊. X
