Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction mean hundreds of orphan orangutans need to be cared for every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.

Orangutan adoptions are a meaningful, tax-deductible gift, perfect for all ages.


Please help the Orangutans in their struggle for survival. Your donation is important and goes directly to BOS Indonesia to help bring this noble yet endangered species back from the brink and on a path to freedom.

You can also SMS BOSA to 0467 000 273 to donate $25 (or any other amount)
