The Orangutan Project raises awareness for the protection and conservation of orangutans and their habitat. PlayMonster is not only “Big On Fun”, now they are big on giving back. Coinciding with National Orangutan Day TODAY, Aug.19, 2019, PlayMonster has committed to a year-long Green Partnership and plans to support The Orangutan Project with initiatives across North America.
The Orangutan Project
Since 1998, The Orangutan Project has worked tirelessly on orangutan conservation, including orangutan rescue, rehabilitation and release programs, as well as securing forest habitat protection and regeneration, education, research and local community partnerships.
Over the past two years, The Orangutan Project has leased 38,000 hectares of rainforest, bringing its total to 3,500 orangutans in over 330,000 hectares of protected habitat patrolled by 90 Wildlife Protection Rangers. In addition, The Orangutan Project has rescued 65 orangutans, cared for over 200, and released another 44 into the wild, bringing its survival rate to 70% of rescued orangutans released into the wild.
They are committed to making sure your donations work as hard as possible. They don’t have an office – each member of their team works from their own home, using their own electricity, internet and infrastructure. This helps keep their overheads among the very lowest in the sector and ensures as much of your donation as possible goes straight to where it’s needed most.
They are also working hard to increase and secure their future income streams. Their big goal is to raise $20 million dollars every year because they know that’s the only way, they can secure the long-term survival of all orangutan sub-species, and safeguard their jungle habitat. And they will achieve this, with your help!
As the creators of the fun-filled kids’ game OrangutwangTM, PlayMonster wanted to show that not only is it Big on Fun, but it is also big on helping one of the world’s most intelligent, yet highly endangered, mammals alongside The Orangutan Project.
“Partnering with The Orangutan Project is a no-brainer for us,” said Lisa Wuennemann, Master Marketing Monster at PlayMonster. “By becoming a sponsor of The Orangutan Project, we’re dedicated to the success of this project and to the beginning of an important conversation, which will lead us to having more orangutans swinging through the trees.”
In partnership with PlayMonster, I received their game Orangutwang to giveaway to 1 lucky reader!
