Is he not THE CUTEST THING?!?!  Besides loving golden retrievers (actually all dogs) and flamingos, I LOVE orangutans .  So, when learned that orangutan numbers have been reduced to alarming low levels because of clear cutting, forest fires, and hunting for the black market, I knew I wanted to do something to help.  Enter the Orangutan Outreach, whose mission is to save the critically endangered orangutans and protect their rainforest home.  Meet Cinta, the orangutan that I adopted a few months ago.  Cinta was rescued on Valentine’s Day of 2014 and named her “love” in Indonesian.  For just $10 a month or $120 a year you will become an adoptive parent of an orangutan to help ensure that he or she will have everything they ned until they can be safely released back into the forest.

$10 per month
