Rapid deforestation is occurring across the world and the habitat of the orangutan is disappearing right now and we need your help.

As part of the worldwide Orangutan Caring Week, The Orangutan Project launched ‘Orango Tango’, a national fundraising campaign designed to build a critical mass of concerned voices to focus attention on the species through the efforts of public supporters.

It’s TIME to Orango Tango!

We would like you to come to understand that the habitat of the orangutan, the tropical rain forest, is vital to not only orangutans but to other wildlife and to all of us on this planet. Rainforests and related ecosystems provide important services from climate moderation, to water quality and erosion control, to storehouses of genetic, species and ecological biodiversity. Rainforests need to be sustainably managed to maintain these services. We want to inform citizens in our own communities of this connection and continue to enlighten local people in areas near orangutan habitat.
