Junebug Go Orange for Orangutans

Junebug Go OrangeFor Orangutans

Well we’ve finally finished recording a couple of songs which are our first as a band since 2008. Has it really been that long? Anyway, we’re proud to be releasing two new tracks as digital downloads in support of Chester Zoo’s Go Orange for Orangutans campaign (http://www.actforwildlife.org.uk/go-orange-for-orangutans/go-orange-for-orangutans) that runs throughout October 2014. The double ‘ape’ side includes two new Junebug tracks, The Song of the Apes and She’s An Ape, Not a Monkey.

The tracks are available to buy direct from the Junebug Bandcamp website (https://junebugtheband.bandcamp.com/album/junebug-go-orange-for-orangutans). All proceeds will be donated to Chester Zoo’s Act for Wildlife charity that is running the Go Orange for Orangutans campaign.

So why are we supporting this charity? We’ve developed quite a fondness for these animals and as one of our closest relatives they need our help. Orangutans treetop homes in Sumatra and Borneo are some of the oldest on earth and had remained almost unchanged for the past 70 million years. However, in as little as the last 30 years more than 80% of their forest home has been destroyed. With their numbers dwindling we’re on the verge of losing this species forever. The same is true of all of the other great apes including chimpanzees, gorillas and bonobos.

By supporting Junebug as they Go Orange for Orangutans you can help to replant the rainforest home of endangered orangutans in Borneo. It’s easy to help, you simply donate £1 to download the tracks (or more if you wish) and the net proceeds go to helping orangutan conservation.

We hope you enjoy the songs and that they get you going ape. Or wooping like a gibbon! And swinging – like an orangutan. {:-(|}
