Judi Dench reveals she has adopted three orangutans as she campaigns to protect the Bornean rainfore

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/06/23/judi-dench-reveals-has-adopted-three-orangutans-campaigns-protect/?WT.mc_id=tmg_share_fb

Judi Dench has revealed that she has adopted three orangutans, as the actress launched a campaign to protect the Bornean rainforest and its endangered species.

The disclosure came on Thursday evening during a premiere of her new documentary titled ‘Judi Dench’s Wild Borneo Adventure’, in which she travels across threatened habitats off the coastline of the Malysian Borneo.

Conservationists have warned of the dwindling populations of wildlife found at the heart of the Indonesian Borneo, with 100,000 indigenous orangutans being killed or forceably relocated since 2002.

The clearing of large swathes of tropical forests to make room for the production of palm oil- a substance used in most consumer products - has been blamed for the decline in biodiversity.

2. I was going to say, I know a place on Pennsylvania Avenue, NW, where she could adopt one more

4. Financial support "adoption"

Those who ‘adopt’ endangered animals often receive a fact sheet, photos, a certificate and cuddly toy – while their financial contribution supports the vital work carried out to conserve endangered wildlife and habitats.

5. As hlthe2b said, it is a symbolic adoption - various organizations do this

To help animals, both rescued and in the wild:

Animal adoptions like yours give a huge boost to our work. They not only help fund projects to monitor orangutans in Borneo and help create protected areas of rainforest but also fund our other vital work around the world.
https://support.wwf.org.uk/adopt-an-orang-utan


From as little as 14p | 20¢ per day you can make a difference to the orangutans in our care. Orangutans are a highly endangered species, and each one we rescue must undergo a lengthy and costly rehabilitation process before they can then be released. Your support will make a real difference.
https://www.internationalanimalrescue.org/adopt-orangutan?currency=USD


Please help us protect MORE orangutan rainforest!
We’ve been given a new opportunity to protect 39,000 acres of orangutan rainforest! But urgent steps must now be taken to keep it safe.
