Check out the websites of the following orangutan conservation organizations to see what you can do. You may be able to adopt an orangutan, raise money to support conservation, make a donation or write to people who can make a difference.
Perhaps you could get your class or school to organize a petition to send to your president or prime minister. You could also tell your friends and family about orangutan conservation and, of course, recommend Monkey Magic – 10 percent of the author’s royalties go to conservation charities.
