Event description

Description

Help the Sumatran Orangutan Society purchase a palm oil plantation which has gone out of business, and restore the land back to rainforest in order to create a forest home for displaced orangutans. Please join us for a special afternoon with a presentation about orangutan conservation by wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas, live music by The 2 of Us, silent auction, hors d’oeuvres, wine, beer and more!

Orangutans and other jungle animals endemic to Sumatra, including Sumatran tigers and elephants, are in grave danger of extinction due to habitat loss from the palm oil industry. This is a timely opportunity to return some of their lost territory. Working with Indonesian partners, the Sumatran Orangutan Society will buy and restore this 890 acre site to its former natural glory. Removing the oil palms and replanting the forest will encourage orangutans and other wildlife to return, extending their habitat from the neighboring national park.

Suzi Eszterhas and Janessa Olsen holding a fundraising event to raise enough funds to allow S.O.S. to purchase the palm oil plantation and begin the process of restoring that land back to rainforest. The Sumatran Orangutan Society is a 501(c)3 organization dedicated to saving the Sumatran Orangutan from extinction. Suzi and Janessa are S.O.S. ambassadors and are authorized to fundraise on their behalf.

Sponsored by Suzi Eszterhas Wildlife Photography, Beaumont Farms, Lagunitas Brewing Company and Miyoko's Creamery.
