1 million trees for orangutans - thank you!

One million trees!
One million trees!

This week we planted the millionth tree at our forest restoration site in Sumatra. A heartfelt thank you to everyone who helped us reach this amazing milestone.

To celebrate, we have launched an animation, voiced by SOS patron Bill Bailey, featuring the rather charming Armstrong the oranguatan! You can watch the animation http://orangutans-sos.org/savearmstrong.

SOS Director Helen Buckland is in Sumatra this week to visit the projects and witness the planting of the millionth tree. She says:

"Wildlife is starting to return to this corner of the park, including orangutans and elephants.  When I first visited the site where we are planting the one millionth tree, it was such a barren landscape, you couldn’t even hear birdsong. But today, it’s a thriving young forest , buzzing with life once again. Planting a million trees to restore lost habitat is a fantastic achievement. However, we must keep fighting to protect and restore the last standing forests in Sumatra if we are to turn the situation around for orangutans.  Please share our project far and wide so that we can carry on with our frontline conservation work and keep campaigning against any further destruction of Sumatra’s rainforests.”

Thank you for helping us build a brighter future for Sumatra’s forests, its wildlife and its people.
