World Orangutan Day 2017!

World Orangutan Day 2017!

Posted by Leanne Sturrock on Aug 16, 2017

August 19th marks World Orangutan Day, a time in which we turn our attention to one of the most critically endangered species on earth. With their numbers plummeting by 75% in the past 100 years, the threats faced by these vulnerable great apes are almost insurmountable, and they need our help if they’re to survive.


In light of this important occasion, The Great Projects are offering 15% off two of our amazing orangutan volunteer experiences. You can head to The Great Orangutan Project in Kuching, spending time at the Matang Wildlife Centre and aiding in the preservation of orangutans. Alternatively, take part on a vital conservation experience with the world-renowned IAR (International Animal Rescue), and help towards the rehabilitation of Ketapang’s orangutans.


This 15% discount is available for ONE DAY ONLY (today, 19th August), so if you want to take part, now is the time to book your place! To find out more about the threats orangutans face and how you can help them, check out our infographic just below.
