I got involved with Orangutan Outreach about 5 years ago, when I was inspired to donate to an organization after seeing Orangutan Island. I found OO, and collected checks from friends, sent them off and never expected to hear from the founder Rich Zimmerman. But within a week, I got an email and a phone call thanking me for my donation, personally. Rich and I started communicating regularly, and over the years he's kept me abreast about his endeavors, and has shared his love of the red apes with old and young alike. He's spoken for free 2 times at a local high school while visiting for a nearby conference, and has worked tirelessly around the clock without pay for 5+ years. He is a realist, and knows he is working against deep corruption and poverty. He won't paint a pretty picture, and let's face it, many Americans want the cute photos of Orangutans, but don't care to hear that their cookies are the source of their demise. But Rich is honest, cares more deeply than the majority of humans about our great apes, and he works himself to the bone to do everything in his power to better their futures.
