WAV Comment – as a reminder for the giving day for apes; we have just donated to one of our favourite rescue centres; the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Foundation. Please support them with a donation today if you are able.
Today is one of the biggest days of the year to show how much you care about the orangutans in our centres.
In honour of #GivingDayforApes, I want to share some important numbers with you:
Our orangutans require a lot of care, while our 38 surrogate mothers work tirelessly in the tropical heat to teach our forest school students how to survive in the wild.
The orphans drink a total of about 15,000 litres of milk and use 10,000 diapers per year. And eat more food than you can imagine Mark, such as yams, melons, eggplants, rambutans, watermelons, and a mountain’s worth of bananas.
All in all, that’s 1,000 tonnes of food per year.
If just 1 in 10 of those reading this email – people like YOU, Mark – gave $25 we could reach our goal to raise $20,000 by midnight tonight to provide milk and nutritious food for all of our orangutans.
So will you help us reach our goal?
Click the donation button below to donate $25 or more right now and help us meet our goal before the midnight deadline.
You have my word, Mark, that 100% of the donations will support our orangutan care and conservation activities in East and Central Kalimantan.
For the orangutans we all love,
Dr. Ir. Jamartin Sihite
CEO of BOS Foundation
