Want to help Orangutans? Guest blog post from Outrop

The Orangutan Tropical Peatland Trust (OuTrop) OuTrop works to protect, restore and regenerate the tropical peat-swamp forests of southern Borneo and the biodiversity within, including the endangered Bornean orangutan. We undertake in-situ research, training and conservation activities to develop sustainable conservation solutions for the Sabangau Forest, home to the world’s largest orangutan and Bornean southern gibbon populations, plus countless other species.   OuTrop has been shortlisted for funding support by the European Outdoor Conservation Agency in a Public Vote 2013 competition through National Geographic Germany! Please support OuTrop in this competition and help us win this valuable funding through casting your vote here: If we are successful in winning this competition we will protect orangutans by funding patrols to stop illegal logging and fight forest-fires, replanting natural rainforest and monitoring orangutan health and well-being.   Thanks for your support! The OuTrop Team   The Orangutan Tropical Peatland Trust is a Registered Charity in England and Wales, Charity Commission number 1142870.

Project Dirt: Social Networking for Eco Projects!

'Dirters' are less about talking and more about doing! Project Dirt connects people and organisations doing tangible green projects. It was set up to help people and organisations collaborate over green issues and make things happen. The site is a platform driven by the people that use it. Examples include community groups getting together to dig holes and plant trees, improve green spaces, or deliver workshops, courses and training. The events section of the website is particularly useful as a one stop shop for finding out about forthcoming eco events you can get stuck into. Project Dirt is run as a social enterprise, with support from companies that wish to showcase their environmental and community ethos, such as Timberland. If you have a forthcoming event with an eco focus, advertise it on Project Dirt! To contact Atul email: or follow @ecoexperttv
