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.
