Help us today to enrich their lives

“The most important thing is that we don't give up the fight to protect the orangutans, the forests and, ultimately, ourselves.” - Lone Dröscher Nielsen (recently knighted by the Danish Royal Court for her orangutan conservation work)

We currently care for over 100 orangutans who will never ever live freely again.
Confined to an island or enclosure for the rest of their lives due to injury or disability, we believe it is our duty to give these orangutans the best possible lives.

Please donate to enrich their lives,

Your donation will help to build the new enclosure and tools that will continue to enrich, and significantly brighten the lives of those who cannot go back into the wild.

You can also learn more about our new enrichment program here.

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction mean hundreds of 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.


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.
