Save our Cousins from Extinction
I wonder how many of us would be so fond of our Mars a day, if we realised that 'rest, work, and play', could be the end of the orangutans. Mars Bars, and thousands of other worldwide consumer products use palm oil in their ingredients (often labelled as vegetable fat). The increase in demand has lead to sever loss of orangutan habitat as palm oil plantations expand in places such as Borneo, Sumatra, and South East Asia.
On the 7th July at 6pm, they are holding a special presentation called Hangout for Orangutans, in which they hope to raise funds and awareness to help their cause. It will be held at The Hub King's Cross , and the evening will begin with a presentation from world renowned orangutan experts such as Michelle Desilets, Leif Cocks, and Garry Sundin. Drinks and nibbles will be provided, and there will be an auction and raffle to follow.
Tickets are £12 for adults and £10 concessions. If you cannot make the event, but would like to be there in spirit, you can also purchase a 'spirit' ticket by donating £10.
