The Hangout for Orangutans tour will culminate with the Trans Borneo Challenge, the biggest international fundraiser ever attempted to help save the orangutan. The goal is to have 200,000 global supporters donate just $1 to raise $200,000 for orangutan conservation in 2013, which will make a huge difference in saving the endangered species.
