Richard Fraser and Katie Morrison (pictured) will tackle the Liverpool 10km Tunnel Run on Sunday in support of a campaign, which is aiming to highlight the plight of endangered species in southeast Asia.

The region is one of the most bio-diverse in the world and is home to iconic animals like Sumatran tigers, Bornean and Sumatran orangutans, Sumatran rhino and Asian elephants.

However all of these species are all under severe threat from hunting, deforestation and illegal trading. Without awareness and funding to tackle the problems facing them, they could soon become extinct.
