I cannot speak highly enough of Richard Zimmerman and Orangutan Outreach. The efforts of OO are far reaching and I know when I donate to them, the money is actually going to genuine orangutan conservation efforts on the ground, where it matters and where it will have the best impact. OO support other genuine NGO's in Kalimantan like Nyaru Menteng, IAR, JAAN and COP. As the Director of Orangutan Outreach I find the integrity that was displayed by Richard by severing ties with another "orangutan conservation effort" in Sintang, when a baby orangutan named Luna mysteriously "disappeared" from forest school speaks volumes about this organisation and the people behind it. To OO and Richard this was a totally unacceptable occurrence and they walked away, but not before ensuring the remainder of the orangutans in Sintang were taken to a genuine, legal rehabilitation centre (IAR) with qualified, experienced staff. I take my hat off to Richard and OO for all they have done and continue to do for orangutans.
