In celebration of World Orangutan Day, the WCFF hosts an evening of films with discussion to celebrate Orangutans and the other Great Apes. Orangutans and chimpanzees share 0ver 98% of our DNA, yet we continue to destroy their habitats for timber, minerals and the Palm Oil industry. We keep them captive for testing in laboratories for experiments and sell them for the exotic pet trade. In some counties their populations are subject to the bush meat trade and they are sold in open air markets for food.
