February's ‘Save our Species’ campaign is all about the sophisticated Orangutan
Orangutans have declined by 50% in the last 60 years.
It’s because of these shocking statistics that HÖRFA launched their ‘Save our Species’ campaign, which features six limited edition prints, with a new design highlighting a different endangered animal every month.
February is a celebration of the Orangutan. Their name simply means ‘Man of the Forest’.
These intelligent primates are the most arboreal of the great apes, spending most of their time in trees.
There are three species of orangutan – the Sumatran, Tapanuli and Bornean. These guys used to roam as far north as China and as far south as the Indonesian island of Javan, but now they are found on only two islands – Sumatra and Borneo.
One of the biggest reasons for their fall in numbers is loss of habitat for road development, palm oil plantations, illegal pet trading, poaching, logging and mining. It’s estimated that over 2,000 Bornean orangutans are killed each year.
The WWF are working tirelessly to combat this sad story, but they need our help. So HÖRFA will donate profits of every sale of this limited edition print directly to the WWF to help towards their vital conservation work.
Who knew that shopping and looking good could save a species! Do your bit by buying this sophisticated sweatshirt for you or for a friend. Or you can visit www.org.uk and donate anything you can towards their cause instead.
The limited-edition prints are available for February only, so once it's gone… it's gone!
