Today is International Orangutan Day!
In honor of this day, we share a video episode of the podcast Eco Impacters featuring OFI’s President Dr. Biruté Mary Galdikas and Blane Edwards of Orangutan Alliance Australia in a dynamic conversation. Dr. Biruté shares her experience and wisdom gleaned from fifty years of fieldwork in Borneo.
Please enjoy and share this riveting interview with your family and friends!
International Orangutan Day provides an opportunity to celebrate our beloved gentle giants and raise awareness about the critically endangered orangutan and their tropical rainforest habitat.
In addition to making a direct donation to our programs that protect and conserve these noble creatures, you can also help by:
- Saying “No” to products which contain palm oil
- Fostering an orphaned orangutan
- Wearing orange today and telling everyone why orangutans are important to you
