Save the Last Tapanuli Orangutans!

To Indonesian President, Joko Widodo:

The fate of an entire species rests in your hands. With one decision you could save the Tapanuli Orangutans and their rainforest home -- or look away as they're wiped out forever. As citizens of Indonesia and around the world, we urge you to cancel the Batang Toru hydropower dam and save them, and we look forward to cheering your courageous action.

Save the Last Tapanuli Orangutans!
She's trying to save her home from a giant digger. But can't.

And now the bulldozers are in a tiny speck of rainforest where earth's last 800 Tapanuli Orangutans cling to life.

It's all to build a hydropower dam that could easily push them to extinction.

But Indonesia's President can still cancel the dam, and he wants to be seen as the people's president. So if we build a massive campaign, get huge media coverage and national polls -- he could do it! Wildlife experts are about to meet him, and will deliver our call -- so add your name before the diggers do more damage!
