All you need to do is to get baking and be social – have a cake sale for instance at home with friends, at work or in school or with your youth group. And then donate the proceeds to IAR over the phone or online and help these endangered animals.
This way, funds can be raised to help IAR rescue orangutans, care for them and hopefully release them back to the wild. If they can’t be released into the wild, they are kept permanently at the rescue centre.
IAR rescues and rehabilitates
baby orangutans snatched for their mothers and kept as pets
orangutans who’ve been kept in captivity, sold as pets
orangutans who have been stranded when their forest homes are destroyed by people - they are relocated to safe, protected areas
The charity also has education and outreach programmes to encourage local communities to change and protect the orangutans.
It works to protect the habitat for orangutans by:
Encouraging sustainable farming so that the forest doesn’t have to be destroyed in the first place
Reforesting areas lost in fires
Creating free corridors for orangutans to move safely through so that they can move from one area to another
