Orangutan Adoptions

Why adopt an orangutan?

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction.

Hunting, the pet trade, trafficking and habitat destruction mean hundreds of orangutan deaths every year!

With your help, we can change this. By adopting one of our orangutans, you can take comfort that they are being cared for around-the-clock by dedicated ‘nannies’, who teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild in places not threatened by people.
The perfect gift…

You can adopt a beautiful baby orangutan today for yourself or for someone special for:
•    $120.00 per year, one off or ongoing, or

•    $12.00 per month ongoing.              (Australian dollars)

  Orangutan adoptions are tax deductible in Australia.

Dodo arrived at Samboja Lestarii as the youngest orangutan in the baby group. Since being rescued Dodo has been in and out of hospital, he seems to be very susceptible to anything that’s going around, making him that little bit more precious.
Named after the paramedic who saved him at just a few months old, Miko was confiscated in Kerang Bengkirai. A fairly recent arrival, this tiny little ape came to Nyaru Menteng dehydrated and suffering an injury to his hand.
Nita was kept as a pet until she was 1.5 years old. She ate cake and tea and could not figure out how to climb trees.
When Nody was rescued from the illegal pet trade, he was taken to the nursery at Nyaru Menteng. Like many others he watched his mother get killed, but he is a resilient little fellow and is now learning a lot in forest school.
After her mother was killed, Ruthie was kept as a pet and ill-treated, leaving her physically and emotionally scarred, but after some much needed love and care she is developing into a very cheeky orangutan.
