A big hairy thank you! By taking part in Ape-ril, you will be helping to secure a future for Sumatran orangutans and their forest home.  

Look up "Great Apes" and you'll find it's a family...our family! We share 96.4% of our DNA with orangutans, but we have pushed them to the edge of extinction. By supporting the Ape-ril campaign, you can help save them.

Deforestation is the greatest threat facing orangutans. Tearing down jungle for farmlands and roads destroys all manner of natural balances and is one of the biggest drivers of climate change. Orangutans need the forests to survive - and so do we.

Take part in Ape-ril

Show your solidarity with our Great Ape cousins this Ape-ril - unleash your inner orangutan!

To take part, share an image of you unleashing your inner orangutan, make a donation, and nominate friends and family to do the same. You could even get sponsored to dye your beard orangutan-orange!

By raising awareness, and vital funds, we can make a real and lasting impact on the survival of orangutans and the conservation of their rainforest home.
