To Celebrate Orangutan Day, Orangutan Outreach shared New Images Of Its Bored Ape Helping Apes!
The Orangutan Outreach Celebrated Orangutan Day today with a Twitter Space and a series of new images of the organization’s Bored Ape helping apes!
August 19th is international Orangutan Day and while no one knows the exact origin of the holiday, the Orangutan Outreach does know it’s a time for celebration!
“The goal of International Orangutan Day is to raise awareness about the predicament facing orangutans in the wild,” the charity wrote on its website. “Orangutans are only found in the forests of Borneo and Sumatra. There are three species of orangutans - Bornean, Sumatran, and Tapanuli — and all three species are critically endangered. The Tapanuli orangutans are the most endangered— with fewer than 800 individuals remaining.”
To raise awareness for Orangutans, the charity shared several images of its Bored Ape, Bored Ape #2238 AKA Julius, with Orangutans!
This Orangutan Day, the charity is asking the BAYC and NFT community to help them save real life apes!
“So many people's lives have been changed because of their Apes and we would ask them to return the favor by helping change the lives of REAL APES!”
