Recycle old cell phones or pagers for orangutan conservation
Donate old cell phones and pagers to help communities and to save endangered species. Everyone benefits: communities receive technology, the environment is protected from the toxic waste of throwing away unwanted phones, resources are saved by reusing the phones, habitats and animals are protected, and you can get rid of that old phone or pager.
Virtually Adopt an Orangutan
The Orangutan Conservancy (OC) is offering an exciting new way to learn about orangutans and to help support the organization’s conservation efforts by offering virtual adoptions of wild orangutans living in the Kutai National Park in Borneo for $120 per year. An adoption packet makes a great gift for a friend or family member who loves animals, and is an exciting and educational way for classrooms to fundraise while learning more about orangutan conservation issues.
Anniversary, birthday, or special occasion, remember your loved ones with “A Gift from the Heart” — a beautiful card with a photo of an orangutan. This special memento will be a lasting one as it will go to help the endangered orangutans and their rainforest home.
Other Ways to Help
Stage a fundraiser, post flyers, volunteer, link to the OC website — even if you don’t have money to donate to OC, you can use your creativity and a little of your time to raise money to help orangutans.
