To lose the lion from our world would be to lose part of our global heritage.

Wherever you may be on August 10th, celebrate the lion, create much needed conservation awareness and help save the King of Beasts and his kingdom.

International Orangutan Day

Saturday August 19th - All Day

To recognize the most iconic victim of the palm oil industry, International Orangutan Day has been set for August 19th, EVERY YEAR! The aim of this campaign is to help encourage the public to take action in preserving this amazing species.

From 1992-2000, the population of the Sumatran orangutan is considered to have declined by more than 50%. Estimates suggest there are as few as 6,500 Sumatran orangutans in the wild.

The Bornean orangutan population fell nearly 43 percent in the past decade, from an estimated 35,000 in 1996 to 20,000 in 2006. Since these studies were done, deforestation rates have continued to climb which means the actual populations could be well below these.

Something has to be done to save orangutans and that is the reason for International Orangutan Day! Visit the Orangutan Day webpage to learn more.
