Orangutan Conservation in Indonesia is my first large-scale project, which is both exciting and a little scary. I've been fascinated by rainforests for years now, but have only recently learned about the true plight of the poor red apes who live in the forests of Borneo and Sumatra. Many people (which included me until my boyfriend Chris came along) don't realise how much danger they are in, or even what the dangers actually are. If we don't start learning and helping a lot more, all wild orangutans may be gone before we are, and when I say "we", I don't mean the human race, I mean you, who is at this moment reading this, and me, who has written this for you to read. Believe me, this is extremely sad.

In my quest to aid conservation of the Indonesian rainforests and their animal inhabitants, I'd love your help! You can read more about why we need to help in "The Plight" link, and what I plan to do in "The Plan" link. I've been making records of my fund-raising and my Orangutan Health Project conservation trip in my "Diary" link, so everybody can see what is happening. There's also my first conservation trip review written in my "Reviews" link so you can find out how I rated it. Any extra money raised past what I need (and I want to keep raising after the trip too!) will go to charities such as the Orangutan Foundation.

Terry Pratchett, a well-known comic fantasy author, wrote in one of his many books, 'Once More with Footnotes', that orangutans "are being pushed to the edges, and they're running out of edges. I can't crack a joke about that." He's not exaggerating. You may be asking; Why go to Indonesia? The answer is saddening and simple; because Indonesia and Malaysia are the only places with wild orangutans in them left.

So what are you waiting for, internet adventurer? Time to start exploring further into my site, or alerting other caring people! If you ever want to go back to my home page, just click my logo in the top left.

Thank you,
Love Jo
