Stamps For Orangutans

Staff at UK's Blackpool Zoo are supporting endangered orangutans by collecting their used postage stamps and encouraging visitors to do the same according to the Blackpool Citizen's website.

The initiative has been organized by The Orangutan Foundation who are asking people to send in their used postage stamps to help raise funds for endangered orangutans.

Jude Rothwell, Communications Manager at Blackpool Zoo is quoted as saying, "All our visitors need to do is cut out their postage stamps, leaving approximately 1cm of paper around the stamp, and put them in the collection box at the zoo's reception and we'll send them off to The Orangutan Foundation."

Stamps collected should be sent to Orangutan Foundation Stamps, PO Box 6198, Leighton Buzzard, Beds, LU7 9XT.
