Climbing Lesson

Archie Climbing

£40.00

A baby orangutan in the wild will spend up to 6-7 years with its mother and will learn everything it needs to know from her, including how to climb. Very young babies will cling to their mums constantly. It takes them a long time to build up the skills needed to be able to swing confidently through the rainforest. The orphans at Sepilok do not have a mum to teach them to climb. This means that human carers need to teach them instead. Orangutan Appeal UK funds a training co-ordinator called Victor who has the job of giving the orangutans their climbing lessons.  Your gift of £40 could help to fund this vital work. 

Once purchased we will email you with a certificate about your Gift for the Orangutans. 

If you are purchasing a Gift for the Orangutans as a present on someone else's behalf then feel free to forward the certificate onto them or print it out. 

This gift supports our projects in Malaysian and Indonesian Borneo including helping to care for the orphans at Sepilok Orangutan Rehabilitation Centre. The money that you and our other kind supporters spend on Gifts for the Orangutans will support the full range of Orangutan Appeal UK’s work. Thank you!
