October the 15th marks Indonesian Animal Rights Day and with several of our projects based in the country we thought it appropriate to bring it to your attention. The thought behind the day is to raise awareness and acknowledge the fact that animals still have rights in a country where this is often overlooked.

Indonesian Orangutan

The Orangutans and Sun Bears at our centres, and all of the other wildlife in Indonesia, have the right to be guaranteed a safe haven in their natural habitats, and if human interference continues at its current rate then they will not have anywhere to call home. Animal rights are often overlooked simply down to the fact that they cannot argue back. The animals need a voice and we are the ones who have to give them it.

If we all work together and continue to push animal rights, we can put an end to animal abuse and help the wildlife in both Indonesia and all around the world thrive and flourish. Let’s make the change now.
