What a great idea to help save our not too distant cousins, the orangutans, from extinction! What a loss it would be if these primates became extinct. They are our evolutionary cousins and belong on Earth just as much as we do! Thank God for people like Sir David Attenborough! I hope that they can raise this money to save secondary forest and preserve corridors which are so necessary in saving not only orangutans but the Sumatran elephants as well! Thank you for posting this hopeful article Cal.

Sir David Attenborough said: "Every bit of the rainforest that is knocked down is less space for orangutans. They have been reduced very seriously in the past decade, and we must do all we can to reverse this devastation. I fully support World Land Trust in its bid to save this important land."
Thank you, Sir Attenborough, for your concern and activism!
