The Orangutan Scarf, with its vibrant motif showing an adult male and baby orangutan, was inspired by our close cousins. Did you know orangutans and humans share 97% of their DNA? Despite being our close cousins, today, only about 50,000 Bornean and 7,000 Sumatran orangutans remain in the wild. Their numbers have been dwindling as a result of deforestation and loss of habitat.
100% of the profits from this adorable scarf will go towards caring for orangutans at the Orangutan Care Center and Quarantine (OCCQ) in Borneo, Indonesia, through the Orangutan Foundation Intl. The OCQC houses a medical facility and lab, along with a “Teaching Forest” in which the young orangutans can play and learn under the watchful eyes of their caretakers until they can be returned to the wild. This purchase comes with a Orangutan Care Center & Quartine (OCCQ) Sponsor/Honorary Caregiver Kit.
