A talk - Orangutans and Abingdon: the Sumatran Orangutan Society, working to save the forests and the future of these endangered animals

Tuesday, 21st January2:30pm-3:30pm

Organised by: The Abingdon & District National Trust Association

The Sumatran Orangutan Society (SOS) was founded in 2001 with the mission of ensuring a safe future for Sumatran orangutans in the wild. The charity is based in Abingdon, but its impacts are global and far-reaching. With partner NGOs in Sumatra, SOS works to tackle the causes of deforestation as well as the symptoms, taking a holistic approach to conservation which draws on sustainable programmes, education and forestry practices to ensure that the orangutans remaining in the wild in Sumatra can thrive long into the future. The small SOS team based in Abingdon are dedicated to fundraising, research and technical support for Sumatran orangutan conservation. They also focus on communicating the charity's work to local, national and international audiences to create a global network of people who care and are empowered to do something to help. Lucy Radford, who is giving the talk, is SOS' Fundraising and Communications Officer. Prior to this, she had over a decade of experience working in primate conservation, in many roles.
