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)

Select the orangutan you wish to sponsor below to view the various payment options.

  Orangutan adoptions are tax deductible in Australia.  

Cinta was around five months old and severely underweight when she was discovered at a palm oil plantation. Initially shy and nervous, with the help of her babysitters she has come out of her shell and now socialises with the other infants in her group.

Jumbo came to be at BOS when hunting dogs scared his mother away and he was separated from her. The scars of losing his mother are still fresh and he’ll hug himself when he’s surprised or scared. However we’re confident that the rehabilitation process will turn him into a confident boy.
Meryl was rescued from captivity in early 2015. She was eight months old and weighed only 2.7kg. She was rescued and cared for by our Vet; Meryl Yemima, who she was then named after. After quarantine when she was healthy, Meryl began Baby school and is now attending Forest School Group 1.
Named after the paramedic who saved him at just a few months old, Miko was confiscated in Kerang Bengkirai. In 2010 this tiny little ape came to Nyaru Menteng dehydrated and suffering an injury to his hand.
Valentino came to Nyaru Menteng on the 14th of February 2015 - hence his name. He was only around 5 months old and was in very poor condition. Weighing just 2.2kg and with wounds all over his little body.
