Rainforest Appeal...


What would you do if everything you see around you just completely disappeared one day?

It is estimated that an average of 1.15 million hectares of forest per year was lost to fires, logging or clearing for oil palm plantations in Borneo between 2003 and 2007. To put this in perspective, at this rate, Melbourne CBD would be destroyed in just over one day and it would take a mere 19 hours before inner City Sydney disappeared entirely.

Can you imagine how orangutans must feel when they find that their rainforests, their homes, have completely disappeared?

Already BOS Indonesia has secured over 560,000 hectares for orangutan protection in Borneo; that is six times the size of Singapore. With your help, we hope to increase that by an extra 20% in 2017.

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.
