1 5th October 2014 Last year University Academy students raised almost £900 for the Chester Zoo and Act for Wildlife GO ORANGE campaign. Chester Zoo staff have been asking, who will beat Dominic and Josh’s fundraising total and win the coveted Chester Zoo prize? Which Year Group will raise the most money and what teacher is going to win the prize for most outlandish Orange outfit ? But most of all will they beat their £870 total from last year? On Friday the 24 th UAW will be a cacophony of colour with students paying £1 for the privilege of wearing orange? Tutor groups will be holding bake sales, and all sorts of wonderful and wacky fundraising activities. Get your outfits ready and prepare yourself to Act for Wildlife!
Over the last 84 years the orang-utans habit has slowly been destroyed by humans
Threats to Orangutans: Running out of time : the relentless expansion of oil palm production means that a lack of time is a real threat to the conservation of the Bornean Rainforest. Forest destruction: primarily due to clearing forest for oil palm plantations, forest is being cut down to meet the global demand for palm oil. Extinction: habitat loss on this scale could lead to the extinction of many of the island’s ‘flagship’ species. Worst-case scenarios indicate that if forest destruction continues the Orang-utan will face extinction.
“ In 2011, I was part of a Chester Zoo team who acted for orangutans by travelling out to assist our project partners in Borneo who are building bridges for orangutans. We spent two weeks with the HUTAN-KOCP team and assisted with the construction of seven bridges in conditions of 35 °C, 90% humidity and a lot of leeches!” “Last year I raised almost £100 with my friend by doing a sponsored run, I got my friends and family to sponsor me and it was great fun and we won a visit to Chester zoo” “At summer school we learnt about the orang-utans habitats and how we can help by raising money to help fund rope bridges to let them cross the rivers”
