2nd Annual Pongo Environmental Awards and Fundraiser
25 July 2015 - Santa Monica, CA - Notable environmental achievements and the people behind those accomplishments will be honored during the Second Annual Pongo Environmental Awards and Fundraiser in Beverly Hills, CA on September 26, 2015. Organized by Orang Utan Republik Foundation, the event was rebranded in 2014 to expand the range of environmental honorees that have contributed significantly to not only orangutans but to the entire biosphere. The fundraiser portion is one of the ways OURF raises funds for its various programs of education and community engagement in Indonesia where the largest remaining population of orangutans still live in the wild. The public is invited to attend the event which will feature actor and environmentalist Ed Begley Jr., and other fascinating guests as well as the Pongo award honorees.
