To celebrate “Orange For Orang-utan Day” on November 10, Orion Expedition Cruises is launching a trade campaign which will not only reward travel agents but will also help in the conservation of orang-utans and their habitats.

Throughout November, any agent booking a 2011 Orion Expedition Cruises’ voyage will be rewarded by Orion adopting an orang-utan in their name.


The agent will receive a personalised certificate with a colour photo of their adopted orang-utan, an orang-utan factsheet, a cuddly toy orang-utan and an update after six months of adoption. Agents will also be entered into a prize draw with the chance to win a fabulous trip to Australia for two people including return flights and a cruise on Orion.

Commenting, Andy Harmer, Orion’s UK Director of Sales & Marketing, said: “The destinations visited by Orion have some of the most pristine and sensitive wilderness areas on our planet and we have a social responsibility to develop a marine tourism blueprint that is sustainable and at the forefront of eco-sensitivity. This new trade campaign not only supports Orion’s commitment to sustainability but also raises awareness of the plight of some of our planet’s most beautiful creatures.”
