$20,000 Goal

The pandemic has impacted all areas of our work. It has not only taken away some of our regular sources of income, but has also meant additional costs to protect the orangutans from SARS-CoV-2. 

Can you help us to keep our animals and staff safe from this highly contagious virus?

The fight against COVID-19 is far from over. Indonesia is struggling to cope with a devastating wave of COVID-19 cases driven by the highly contagious Delta variant.

This is a challenging moment for us as the spread of this strain of the SARS-CoV-2 virus has resulted in even greater challenges, making it difficult for us to carry out usual activities while also protecting our staff and orangutans.

WHAT WE ARE DOING TO KEEP OUR ANIMALS AND EMPLOYEES SAFE

Since the outbreak of COVID-19 in Indonesia, we have implemented strict protocols for preventing infections: All employees have their temperature checked prior to starting their work and those in direct contact with animals are required to wear protective clothing and equipment.

We also test our staff for COVID-10 on a monthly basis. As the Delta variant of the virus has contributed to the rapid rise in the number of cases throughout Indonesia, we even began preparations for more frequent testing.

In the instances where we had employees test positive for COVID-19, they were immediately sent home and tested again by PCR. At the same time, we quarantined and tested all staff and orangutans who had come into contact with the positive employee.

WHY YOUR SUPPORT IS SO IMPORTANT

Your help is crucial in allowing us to continue the testing of staff who interact directly with orangutans, in providing PPE and other sanitation supplies, and in keeping the orangutans mentally stimulated and entertained through the regular provisioning of enrichment items.

Your support helps us keep our programs safe working environments:

  1. Give $150 to provide weekly antigen swab tests for staff who interact directly with orangutans
  2. Give $100 to provide monthly PPE and sanitation supplies
  3. Give $50 to provide medicine and multivitamins for orangutans and staff
  4. Give $25 to provide food and enrichment for orangutans

Please give generously to help meet our $20,000 goal.
