Orangutan Caring Week 2021

The orangutan is critically endangered. Deforestation, hunting and illegal wildlife trade are the main reasons for this. But together we can make a change, among other things by spreading the message and raising awareness about the tragic fate of these iconic animals.

This is what we want to do this Orangutan Caring Week, which is annually celebrated in November to raise awareness about the orangutans and the threats they are facing.

Below you can to download an Orangutan Caring Week card and spread the word to followers, friends and family on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or send to your close ones by mail.

You can also download an exciting activity poster for children. A wonderful way to discuss and learn more about life in the rainforest of Borneo.

A baby orangutan is dependent on its mother until it is 7-8 years old and has learned all the necessary skills to survive on its own in the rainforest. Unfortunately, far too many babies lose their mothers before they can fend for themselves. This is due to deforestation, forest fires, hunting and the illegal wildlife trade.

They need our help to be able to return home to the rainforest:
