Wednesday 9th November 2016 is Orange for Orangutan Day, organised by the London-based Orangutan Foundation. It’s part of #OrangutanAwarenessWeek which aims to draw attention to the challenges faced by these primates and their rainforest home. Orangutans are in a critical state as deforestation destroys their habitat for human activities such as palm oil plantations, illegal logging and mining.
