Set your distance, set your fundraising goal, and get a move on for our planet, before it’s too late.
On Saturday 17th September, run, jog or walk your chosen distance, wherever you are in the world, and collect sponsorship to save the rainforest and the amazing wildlife within it.
At International Animal Rescue, we hope to inspire a global movement of committed supporters who care about the environment to take immediate action to protect our planet. If we conserve the rainforest and its vital ecosystems, we not only save species such as orangutans, but our future too.
The Rainforest Run is a virtual run, so people all over the world will be uniting and taking part on the same day, in a location of their choice. Anyone can get involved! You can take on this challenge as an individual, or a team, or even with your dog.
No matter where you are in the world, or what distance you complete, you have the power to make a real and lasting difference. Every step you take is a step towards a better future for generations to come!

WHY IS THE RAINFOREST RUN SO IMPORTANT?
The Rainforest Run is the perfect opportunity for you to join the global movement to save “the lungs of the planet” before it is too late. Climate change and biodiversity loss are having a catastrophic effect on our world and rainforests are a vital weapon in the war against global temperature rises.
WHAT WE'RE DOING
The team at IAR Indonesia works tirelessly to protect precious rainforests, the wildlife within them and the communities who live alongside them. Through forest patrols, reforestation, training in sustainable farming, research, education and the development of alternative livelihoods, the team on the ground is doing an incredible job to keep the forests that we all depend on safe and thriving.
This work is vital but costly. The Rainforest Run provides a unique opportunity to help raise the funds urgently needed to support this lifesaving work.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
By taking part in The Rainforest Run on Saturday 17th September you can play your part in the urgent fight to save our planet.
The funds you raise will help to plant trees, protect rainforests, empower woman, save species, inspire the next generation of eco-warriors, and build a better future for us all.
MORE ABOUT US
RESCUE AND REHAB
With the help of the BKSDA, our dedicated team rescues and rehabilitates baby orangutans that have been sold as pets, as well as adults that have spent years in captivity, chained or locked up in tiny cages.
Our Orangutan Protection Unit comes to the aid of wild orangutans left stranded when their forest home is destroyed and relocates them into safe areas of protected forest.
Our extensive landscape conservation project involves working to protect precious orangutan habitats. The project provides an income for local communities.
Our education and outreach programmes are helping us to inspire, educate and encourage change in local communities whose lives depend on the forests around them.
