Hi-I am raising funds for The Orangutan Project, a not-for-profit Australian organisation whose mission is to save the Bornean and Sumatran orangutan species from extinction by conserving the rainforest and reintroducing displaced orangutans into the wild.
If you can help, I promise plenty of photos, video and stories along the way and upon my return. I’m happy to send you prints of anything you want when I’m back.
I am delighted to have the rare opportunity to visit the jungles of the Kutai National Park, East Borneo. Additionally, I will have the unique experience of visiting an orangutan rescue centre and seeing firsthand the amazing work being done by TOP and its partners.
East Borneo is a remote and wild place. I don't doubt that I'll find the experience physically and mentally demanding, but also immeasurably rewarding. As a condition of going on this trip, I am required to make a donation of $1000, separate from the cost of travel, to The Orangutan Project. All the money raised on this site goes directly to TOP.
