Hello All, I speak as I find and have experience as an international photographer and a press photographer in the UK. Out of all the NoPro organisations I know and have worked with I rate two at the top of the tree (in no order) International Animal Rescue and Orangutan Outreach. I find Simon P's comments below wholly unacceptable and defamatory. Knowing both organisations I do I would suggest Simon P clearly has a hidden agenda. One of the questions below asks "How much of an impact do you think this organization has?" The answer is LIFE-CHANGING for the simple reason, they save animals lives. They get off their bottoms and rescue animals that would otherwise die. They have saved tens if not hundreds of lives over the years, how many can Simon P notch up directly to himself. I cannot abide internet trolls and cowards who post on these pages with the sole intent of causing reputation damage which only in the long term harms the animals. Anyone who harms animals is no friend of mine and I would suggest has no right to be casting false aspersions on others on a website like this. Orang Outreach protect their animals from many types of lesser species of humans and it is clear to me who one of them is. If you have issue with Rich Z act like a man Simon P and pick up the phone to Richard or myself, and please do not post such childish bile on professional websites such as this. You truly are a man who's cause and effect injures animals. Pop along and take a good long hard look in the mirror and congratulate yourself on an awful job expertly done. Oh and 2331 other people cannot be so wrong. https://www.facebook.com/OrangutanOutreach
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
Follow the simple stories of countless rescues and saved Orangs who go onto a life rather than a certain death
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Be able to explain better how Education of people comes in part from carefully selected press stories that make tourists realise it is NEVER acceptable to have a photo taken with a live or dead animal. Only today across Facebook we see pics of a dive boat with Sharks hung up and slaughtered for their fins. I would increase monies clearly and drive up their Facebook awareness by careful use of the media. Press + Awareness + Education = More donations & less tolerance of terrible treatment.
