Adopt a Gibbon
How Can You Help!
Little Irma has a remarkable story. In November 2015, Irma and another young gibbon were found strapped to a woman’s leg underneath her Islamic dress as she was boarding a plane in Jakarta, bound for Kuwait. The woman was arrested and the gibbons rescued but sadly, only Irma made it, with the other infant succumbing to stress and dehydration. Despite being taken from her mother at an incredibly young age, Irma will still have the chance to learn the skills required for survival in the wild. She will need intensive rehabilitation for many years and once she is paired with a suitable mate will be able to taste freedom again in the forests of Java.
For just $55/year you can support Irma’s rehabilitation and help get her back to the forests of Java, where she belongs.
