Many people have seen the recent heart-breaking and shocking footage of an orangutan fighting off a bulldozer.
The situation facing orangutans is now more desperate and urgent than ever. Their forest homes continue to be destroyed at an astonishing rate to make way for palm oil plantations.
Our feature documentary Rise of the Eco-Warriors (2014) told the story of fifteen young people from nine countries who spent 100 days in the jungles of Borneo working with Dr Willie Smits and the local Dayak people on solutions to deforestation and setting up a rescue centre for displaced orangutans.
During the filming of the documentary, an orphaned baby orangutan called Jojo was rescued by the eco-warriors and taken to the Sintang Orangutan Centre (SOC).
In December last year (2017), she was finally released into a protected forest, in the remote Heart of Borneo, and the event was filmed.
This provided the ending to the story we had always dreamed about, and so we decided to release the story as a 13 part TV series Saving Jojo with a new, updated ending.
Come and join us in the screening of two of the Saving Jojo episodes.
Half of earned screening from this session goes to the filmmakers and their cause.
