Orangutan M.O.M.s Event

Date: May 12 2013
Time: 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM

Join members of the American Association of Zoo Keepers from 10 AM – 2 PM on Sunday, May 12 to learn about orangutans, the threats they face in the wild, and how you can help.

As their rain forest home is literally wiped out, more baby orangutans are losing their mothers due to the growing demand for palm oil. These babies, who would normally remain with their mothers for up to eight years, become orphaned and are unable to survive. The Missing Orangutan Mothers (M.O.M.s) campaign helps generate awareness about these issues.
