Indonesia: Save the
Tapanuli Orangutans!

To the Indonesian government and President Joko Widodo:

As citizens from across the world, we urge you to save the last 800 Tapanuli Orangutans from extinction by cancelling the Batang Toru hydropower dam. The fate of this entire species rests in your hands.

They're fighting for their lives.

They're fighting for their lives!

And right now 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 that could 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 and get huge media coverage -- he could do it! Wildlife experts are meeting him in days and will deliver our call -- so add your name to the petition before the diggers destroy their home!
