Gather your friends and help save orangutans without even setting foot in the forest by joining the BOS Foundation’s #FunWalk, which will take place on Jakarta’s #CarFreeDay, November 13.
The #FunWalk will coincide with #OrangutanCaringWeek – an international event observed annually during the second week of November – and gives Jakarta residents the opportunity to show their support for orangutan conservation.
CEO Jamartin Sihite will be accompanied by Uli Herdinansyah, Bayu Oktara, Hilbram Dunar, Farhan, Nadine Alexandra, Umay, Jose Poernomo, Fade2Black, Harsya Subandrio, and Blink. Come and learn everything you need to know about orangutans and habitat conservation. Also attending this event are Swara Maharddhika and Orangutan Lifesaver communities.
The BOS Foundation #FunWalk will start from Pintu Satu Senayan on Jl. Jenderal Sudirman (in front of the FX mall) at 5.30am, and end at Jl. M.H. Thamrin (in front of the UOB bank building). The BOS Foundation team will be accompanied by Bayu Oktara, Uli Herdinansyah, Hilbram Dunar, Fade2Black, Nadine Alexandra Dewi Ames, Farhan and Jose Poernomo, who will all help share information about orangutans, the foundation’s programs, and how you can actively participate in saving Bornean orangutans and their habitats!
