WORK PARADISE - CORPORATE RESPONSIBILITY
WorkParadise, Asia’s leading remote working facilitator, has always been a big supporter to the protection & well-being of animals and the natural environment. Your decision to join WorkParadise makes it possible for the company to contribute to the Orang Utan Republik Foundation and support the critically endangered Borneo Orang Utans in Indonesia
Orang Utan Republik Foundation is an organization dedicated to saving Orang Utans through conservation education & other innovative projects. OURF focuses most of its activities in Indonesia because most wild orangutans are found in that country. The Orang Utan's forest habitat in that country is declining rapidly due to large-scale conversion and poor forest management. Orang Utans are dying in the process from causes both immediate (killed as pests or for pets) and gradual (increased competition or star- vation).
Therefore, in order for the orangutan to be saved from extinction, local Indonesians must become aware of the unique qualities of orangutans, their need for forest habitat to survive, the laws protecting them, and the consequences of illegally buying, selling or owning them.
Founded in October 2004 as the Orang Utan Republik Education Initiative (OUREI), the mission of the Orang Utan Republik Foundation (OURF) has remained true to its founding principles - to save the orangutans of Indonesia through conservation education, outreach initiatives, and innovative collaborative programs that inspire and call people to action. We expanded our mission in 2016 as OURF became the US chapter of The Orangutan Project, enabling us to embrace a much larger portfolio of projects that aim to save orangutans and their habitat.
