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.

She's trying to save her home... but can't.

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

It's all to build a hydropower dam -- and it could push them to extinction.

Indonesia's President can still cancel the dam -- and with elections coming up, he wants to be seen as the people's president. So if we create a massive campaign, get media all over the story, and run polls to show citizens want him to save the orangutans, he could do it!

The diggers are moving right now -- add your name and tell everyone!
