Donate Cryptocurrency to Orangutan Outreach
Precious Red Apes
There are three species of orangutans and they are all CRITICALLY ENDANGERED in the wild. Orangutan Outreach works to protect wild orangutans in their forest homes and to assure that orphaned and displaced orangutans receive the care and support they need until they can be returned to their natural environment. YOU can help us make a difference in the lives of orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra.
Orangutans face many challenges including deforestation, poaching, and capture for sale on the black market (mothers are killed so babies can be snatched). Adult males are killed on sight. Covid-19 is a new and serious threat to wild orangutans, as they share 97% of our DNA and are susceptible to many human illnesses. Anyone with Covid-19 that comes into contact with an orangutan could easily spread it to the ape. If the virus gets into the wild orangutan population, the results could be devastating.
We need your help now more than ever. Contributions are needed to continue to rescue, rehabilitate, and release the orphaned and displaced orangutans. Funds are also used for forest protection and monitoring. Donations and funds from virtual orangutan adoptions are allocated to our partners in Indonesia so they may continue with their life-saving work.
By donating cryptocurrency, you can make a meaningful difference in the fight to save orangutans! A cryptocurrency donation is classified as property by the IRS, which means it is not subject to capital gains tax and is tax-deductible. We are now working with The Giving Block to make donating cryptocurrency as easy as possible. Learn more on The Giving Block's website.
