Little Popi was confiscated from a family in the Sempayau village in East Kalimantan in
September 2016 by the Centre for Orangutan Protection. This village is near a palm oil
plantation. It is highly likely that Popi’s mother was killed by palm oil plantation workers and then she was sold illegally as a pet. She was estimated to be only eight weeks of age when she was rescued.
Popi has come a long way since her rescue. After a few months she could hold her milk
bottle on her own and she also began to stand on her own. She now socializes with other
orangutans including her good friend Happi.
When you purchase a print or a canvas - or an original art piece - 25% of the sale goes to the Orangutan Project, making it possible for this amazing organization to make a difference, and even save the lives of beautiful orangutans like Popi.
These prints are museum-quality matte printed on durable, archival paper.
