Schools – Orangutan Awareness Week

Make your Orangutan Awareness Day a success

‘Orange day’

Everyone must have something orange. Wear orange wigs, orange ribbons in your hair, orange socks – the list is endless.

Everyone brings something orange to eat – oranges, orange cake, orange jelly, orange lollies – to sell to the other school students.

Painting competitions

Paint or draw anything to do with orangutans.

Form a small committee and pick the favourite picture – the winner and then choose which baby orangutan to adopt.

Cake stall

Easy and fun, everybody brings something orange to sell.

Other ideas

There are other things you can do:
•    Jelly bean guessing competitions
–    how many jelly beans are in the jar??
–    or even, how many orange jelly beans are in there
•    A sausage sizzle
•    Face painting
•    A car wash day

And… if everyone contributes with a gold coin donation, you can maybe adopt your own orangutan or buy some rainforest.

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction means hundreds of orphan orangutans need to care for every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
