we will lose the spiritual equivalent of oxygen.”

More ideas and photos from past events:

Our little Umi Orangutan Baby Doll was quite a hit at Zoo Miami! Everyone wanted to hold her and have their picture taken with her. She's available through Ashton Drake or check out Ebay for a good deal.

MONKEY TATTOOS
We had no luck finding orangutan tattoos, but we found these on Ebay. They give us the opportunity to explain the difference between monkeys and apes. At Zoo Miami, we put out a big donation jar saying "Free Temporary Tattoos. Donations are gladly accepted!" All proceeds go toward the adoption of an orangutan orphan on behalf of the visitors to Zoo Miami through Orangutan Outreach.

Put the Orangutans back in the forest!

Milwaukee County Zoo put up a big forest banner. Visitors got to color and put their orangutans back in the forest. More photos from Milwaukee's MOM event here.


Gladys Porter Zoo provided
fun masks for their visitors.
