Sri Pelancongan Sabah and WWF-Malaysia are proud to organise the FIRST Orangutan Day Charity Fun Challenge here in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah!
10% of all proceeds will be donated to the WWF-Malaysia Forest Restoration Programme, which aims to rehabilitate orangutan habitat in Sabah. If you’re bored with running the usual marathons, then come join the fun running challenge to re-ignite your love for running (and orangutans!).
”Chimpanzees, gorillas, and orangutans have been living for hundreds of thousands of years in their forest, living fantastic lives, never overpopulating, never destroying the forest. I would say that they have been in a way more successful than us as far as being in harmony with the environment.” ~ Jane Goodall
These magnificent creatures have been facing extinction at the hands of deforestation in the name of industry for decades. International Orangutan Day was established to help raise awareness of their plights and aid in protecting them.
