Can you imagine the entire population of Pasadena, California disappearing?
Neither can I.
But I also can’t imagine that same number of orangutans disappearing either, and that’s exactly what’s happened to orangutans on the island of Borneo: more orangutan individuals have died than what remain in the wild in just 16 years.
150,000 individual Bornean orangutans lost forever.
With facts this shocking, you’d never expect to hear what we’ve found out: The 2020 Tokyo Olympic organizers allowed Korindo, a rainforest logging giant known for destruction in Indonesia, to supply timber for constructing the Olympic sports venues.
Clint, we need your support to keep the Olympics OUT of the Indonesian rainforests.
Things are dire, but we know how to change thisand have done it before.
Clint, the clock is only a few minutes from striking midnight on the survival of Bornean orangutans, and Korindo’s dirty supply chain is encroaching into Borneo and could very easily begin wiping out the last of Borneo’s orangutans.
We know from field investigations that Korindo is currently working on a nearby island called North Maluku — and this company’s presence is too close to orangutans. We have an opportunity to stop this destruction before it bleeds over into Bornean orangutan habitat. There is no time to spare becauseif trends continue, uninterrupted, all of Borneo’s orangutans will be extinct in less than 10 years.
Please, donate any amount today — we only ask because we need funding urgently from our supporter base.
For the future of Bornean orangutans,
Your friends at RAN
