A journey to the heartland of the rainforest changes a person. Sometimes, we are completely unprepared for the impact that experience will have on our hearts and minds. It is only after we have taken some time for reflection, we come to appreciate the things we take for granted in the every day. Last year, Anna Friel made such a journey of her own. Below, in her own words, she describes the experience: “Nothing prepares you for the moment an Orangutan looks into your eyes. They are looking into your soul pleading for help. When I met Romeo the look in his eyes went beyond this. It was utter sadness. He is beyond hope. He is angry. Wouldn’t you be? All I could do was apologise for what we, the human race, had done to him.” Romeo, a fully grown male, has spent nearly 20 years in captivity because we had nowhere safe to set him free.

But now, Romeo has a chance to know freedom. There is an island on which he can live, with three other female Orangutans and enjoy for the remainder of his life what he has been so long denied. “His only hope for a taste of the freedom he deserves is to spend the rest of his life on an island where he can finally see the world without bars.”

Anna’s appeal on his behalf is as simple as it is from the heart; “Please help Romeo. There is still time for him to know the life he was born for.” - Anna Friel, Actor and Conservation Activist.

Romeo’s last stand does not have to be behind the bars of cage. With your help today, he can be where he should be, nesting in the trees beneath open, starry skies.

Thank you.
