Welcome Katty...

Baby Katty is one of the cutest baby orangutans you will ever see. She was rescued by the Central Kalimantan Natural Resources Conservation Agency (BKSDA) and the BOS Foundation’s Nyaru Menteng team from a local resident who was keeping her illegally as a pet.

Katty now needs someone like you to adopt her which will help pay the costs of the nurturing and training she should have received from her mother.

Help us prepare Katty to live as a wild and free orangutan. Please adopt Katty for yourself or as a gift for someone special today. Click here to adopt now.

Special Offer: The first 25 people to adopt baby Katty by 30 April will receive a FREE copy of Ollie the Orangutan a True to Life book by Jan Latta. Read about Ollie’s adventures as an orangutan in the wild.

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)
