Orangutan Awareness Week 2017! - 15% Off

Between the 12th and 18th of November, The Great Projects joins the rest of the world in celebrating Orangutan Awareness Week, and in doing so we are offering 15% off of all of our orangutan experiences throughout the month of November!

Both the Bornean and Sumatran orangutan are now classed as critically endangered, and this means that they are both at an “extremely high risk of extinction.” Orangutan Awareness Week gives us the chance to focus on the ways in which our actions impact the lives of these great apes, in the hopes of preventing their populations from slipping further.

To help make a difference, we’re happy to announce that all of our orangutan conservation projects will be subject to a 15% price drop until midnight on November 30th – so get involved and help us to protect this tragically endangered species.

We'll be posting on our blog every day, from information on orangutan habitats, to interesting facts about the species itself, right through to volunteer reviews and experiences from the orangutan volunteer projects we have on offer. There’ll be plenty to read, so make sure to check it out and to learn more about how to get involved in the cause!

In the meantime, do take a look at some of our favourite trips, reviews from volunteers, and stories about how your time and care has improved the lives of orangutans so far. Orangutan Awareness Week is incredibly vital not only to the orangutan itself, but to all creatures that share its habitat – and this is why it is so crucial that we take part in making the planet a healthier, safer place for all, one project at a time.
