My Travel Story

by: Kristoffer Sandås Start Date: Aug 9, 2017 - End Date: Dec 6, 2017
I am  going on a seven month volunteer trip to Borneo to help support the Orangutan Project. Their work consists of rescuing orphaned or captured orangutans, rehabilitating them and releasing them into the wild in secure areas. They are also working to change the palm oil industry, which is destroying the habitat of the orangutans and many other endangered animals.

I have supported this work through monthly payments for years and now it is time for me to go there in person to help out in any way I can. I will not get any payment for this and I have managed to save up so that I will be able to live for this time without an income. 

The only thing I still need is the actual ticket to go there and also some vaccines and a tiny bit of insurance to make my dear mother feel better about the whole thing. I have tried to find sponsors in every way, but there seems to be a lack of interest in these things. The sum I need is very small and I would be very sad if I fell this close to the finishing line. You can be a part of actually making something happen and sending a lunatic out into the jungle to save apes :)

You will be able to follow my journey through my video blog, which will be exclusive for donors.

Thank you in advance for being a part of this very important work.
