Stay Tuned for a Ranga Foundation
What is the Stay Tuned for a Ranga Foundation?
Growing up as a tall, pale, freckly red head certainly had it’s challenges for our Director, Dr Paul Hermann. Kids can be very ‘imaginative’ when coming up with nicknames to call their classmates and friends, especially those who stand out from the crowd.
Now as the Director of two successful Allied Health clinics he is a little older and embraces his inner ‘Ranga’ to help the ‘Rangas’ of Borneo who can’t help themselves.
Our “kids” are the Orangutang of Borneo. It is estimated that there are only around 50,000 Orangutans left today and we are sadly losing between 3,000 and 5,000 every year currently. The main cause of this decline is a loss of habitat with over 80% of their forest being lost in the last 20 years.
The ‘Stay Tuned for a Ranga Foundation’ raises vital funds which are donated to ‘Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS)‘ for projects that help protect, rehabilitate and release Orangutans back into the wild. And you can help.
A portion of your consult fees at our clinics go to adopting the Stay Tuned Ranga Orangutans. Together we can support the Orangutan Protection Foundation and help them save our friends.
Stay Tuned is proud to be one of the adopted parents of four baby Orangutans named Dodo, Miko, Valentino and Nita, with our fifth baby on it’s way. Click HERE to find out how you can adopt your own Orangutan.
One of the main challenges facing Orangutans is Palm Oil production. To download an APP to help prevent the support of unsustainable Palm Oil production go HERE.
Thanks for your support. Together we can help change the world.
