Richard was working as a volunteer researching the habits and health of the critically endangered Sumatran Orangutan. Recently BBC2 broadcast “Wonders of the Monsoon - Episode 5 - People of the Monsoon” highlighting the dangers these beautiful creatures face due to deforestation and illegal trading.

Richard loved the rainforest and enjoyed teaching others about the merits of conservation, habitat protection and animal behaviour.

He passed away suddenly and unexpectedly whilst living his dream in Northern Sumatra carrying out this valuable work.

All monies raised will be used for education, conservation and the protection of the Orangutan species and its habitats. Funds will also be made available to support future students to enable them to carry on supporting and protecting the species and its habitat that is so fragile thereby continuing his mission.

Please help us to conserve and protect these beautiful creatures before it is too late.Thank you

Chris & Kate
