So, we have been a little quiet on the blog front for a while (so many exciting project taking up lots of time!) but we are very excited to be back with some very exciting news!
Here at The ANSC we are passionate about making products that are not only fantastic for your human (and pet…) skin, but also are envionmentally sustainable! This of course means we absolutely use no palm oil in our products, but more than this we are partnered with some amazing charities that support some of our most threatened furry friends!
Along with our donation soap (more info on this one to come soon!) we donate 50% of our profits of our tester soaps and tester packs to The Orangutan Project! Statistically speaking our testers are our best selling product both in store and online so we have been very excited to make our next donation to this fantastic charity!
We are really proud to be supporters of the The Orangutan Project and the incredible work they do! They are an incredible not-for-profit who work tirelessly to support a wide range of critical projects that address the holistic problem facing remaining fragmented orangutan populations – including fighting deforestation and habitat loss at the highest level.
We are so excited to announce that we have just donated a massive $5749 towards this amazing work with these wonderfull animals! Here is some info from the charity about how our donation has helped out our new friend Dora!
Sumatran orangutan release site, Bukit Tigapuluh, Sumatra
The Orangutan Project provides funding for a Sumatran orangutan release site in Bukit Tigapuluh (BTP), Jambi, Sumatra. Over 165 orangutans have been released into the BTP ecosystem. It is imperative that populations of Sumatran orangutans be re-established in areas where they once lived.
Young orangutans are kept in pre-release cages at the release site. As well as their standard diet, orangutans are given a wide variety of jungle food to eat including fruits, leaves, rotan stem and termites. Suitable orangutans also partake in ‘jungle school’ as part of their rehabilitation and training to return to the wild. Here they learn how to forage for food and make nests high in the canopy.
It is vital that orangutans in pre-release training receive a good quality diet and medical care. $5,000 will cover the cost of food and medical care for the orangutans undergoing pre-release training for six months. Little Dora here is very close to being released after undergoing jungle school training for two years. Your help has been invaluable to the orangutans at BTP. Thank you!
