Saving Proboscis Monkeys from extinction

Proboscis Monkeys can only live in Borneo and need large protected areas to survive. Borneo loses forests equivalent to an area of about a third of Switzerland every year, or at a rate of 3.2 million acres, much of it to feed the voracious appetite for timber in the West and Asia. Indonesia’s forests are being destroyed at a rate of 4.9 million acres a year.

It is time to play hard! Every fan of this website can make the difference.

Join one or more of these roles. Proboscis Monkeys will love you!

1. Engage our 5 ambassadors

spreadtheword

Become an Activist! We found five celebrities that have the power to change Proboscis Monkeys destiny. Probably our ambassadors still don’t think about the “large nose monkeys” and their extinction risk is far from their priorities.

Activists will keep the ambassadors motivated to complete their efforts.

Documentaries on Proboscis Monkeys dating back 15+ years ago and do not reflect the current situation that poses a serious threat of extinction.

Make it happen the first documentary made with the support of fans of a species threatened with extinction!

With your donation you can support the production of a new documentary about the Proboscis Monkeys that will be filmed in Borneo in 2013.

We must collect a budget of $ 12.000 to cover the living costs of a small video crew of two or three volunteers. These costs include flights to reach Borneo, accommodation and meals, internal transfers, services like renting helicopters for aerial shots, guides etc.

The names of donors will appear in the credits of the documentary and in the background of the leaflet inside the DVD.

Should we promote ourselves as a brand to get attention? Television still matters. So imagine a commercial on MTV that makes people aware of the risk of imminent extinction of the Proboscis Monkey and promotes… actions.

We can buy advertising slots at MTV and make Proboscis Monkeys visible to a wide and active audience.

With your donation you can support an advertising campaign at MTV channel.


If you are a director or a copywriter you may also contribute with your creative ideas.
