This inspiring presentation will take place on the 07 June 2013 and focus on the conservation of our endangered Orangutans of Borneo and Indonesia. Our speakers will be, Arfiana Khairunnisa, visiting conservationist from The Centre for Orangutan Protection (COP) Indonesia and Dr Nigel Hicks, OAUK’sveterinary surgeon, who will talk about their amazing work with the endangered Orangutan.

The event will be opened by the presenter of Sky TV’s travel documentary “Globe Trekker” - Ian Wrightwho will also be sharing some of his amazing experiences in Borneo. Please also join in for our raffle and an auction which will be led by Sky TVs S O S Wildlife and local charity Director Simon Cowell.

Orangutans are our nearest cousins sharing 96.4% of our genes. Best known for their high intelligence and likeness to humans, these great apes have become an important flagship species for the islands of Borneo and Sumatra where they are desperately struggling to survive. Their loss of natural habitat, hunting and exploitation by humans has resulted in a drastic decline in population numbers and without immediate conservation action; there is a real risk that this gentle red ape will become extinct within our lifetime.

COP work tirelessly to rescue injured, displaced and captive orangutans including those who have been subjected to exploitation such as prostitution, abuse in the entertainment industry, or have been subjected to horrific cruelty.

We hope you will join us to learn about the amazing work and efforts that both COP and OAUK are involved in to help to prevent the loss of one the world’s most endearing great apes and their forest habitat.
