Screening of Tapanuli Orangutan film and letter writing session

5:30 - 8:30

Come along for a screening of the fantastic short film about the newly discovered Tapanuli Orangutans.

And have the chance to write a letter to save these orangutans!

Help fight the construction of a damn in Sumatra that will destroy the habitat of the most endangered ape on the planet. Though other banks have dropped funding because it is so environmentally destructive, the Bank of China are funding building a hydroelectric damn in Sumatra, which will provide <1% of electricity, directly through the habitat of the newly discovered and highly endangered Tapanuli orangutan. Sumatra has other renewable energy options, such as a much more productive geothermal energy potential project.

We can't let this damn happen! So we are writing letters in mass to the Bank of China to urge them to stop. We will be organising other forms of protest later in the year. 

Letter templates will be provided, so all you have to do is come along, have a drink, and copy out a letter, with a personalised twist if you like.

Come for as little as 10 minutes and do your good deed for the day, meet some like-minded people and have a chat to find out who the Ape Alliance are and the issues we work on. No tickets needed, just turn up.

We hope to see you there!

(If you can't make this session, find info for the letter templates on our website homepage and Facebook page, to write out your letter in your own time!)



No tickets required- just turn up!
