By Bambi Smyth

 Please help me to save these ‘cousins’ of ours, who share 97% of our DNA, and are considered by many experts to be the second most intelligent animal on the planet.

They play, they ‘laugh’, they squabble, they tease, they show off, they solve problems, they feel joy. They also feel fear, pain, frustration, loneliness and grief.

For those who enjoyed my posts whilst I was in Borneo, please consider this – if the world doesn’t do something to help, then one day (possibly as soon as 10 years) there will be NO MORE of these magnificent creatures left in the wild. And that would be an utter tragedy.

If you care – please help. Every dollar adds up. I've just got another 6 days before the books are closed!

And THANKS SO MUCH to those who have already contributed.

PLEASE share this post with as many friends as possible.

Thrilled to have an opportunity to help these wonderful animals and have loved your photos! How sad that some humans are so horrible.

Bambi something small but a start and a very large amount is left in my will as a result of what you have just done.
