Adopt an orphaned orangutan

Orangutans are on the brink of extinction. Help provide the care and rehabilitation 
they need to return to the wild.

Our Vision


Our vision is a world where orangutans are free from the threat of extinction and can live in the wild, unharmed by humans.

468
Orangutans have been released
back to their home.
466
Orangutans are being cared for in
our sanctuaries.

The Problem


There are numerous threats to the viability of the remaining wild orangutan population in Indonesia and Malaysia.  The primary threat is the loss of habitat with up to 80% of suitable forest in Indonesia and Malaysia having been lost in the past 20 years. Other threats, which often go hand-in-hand with the destruction of the rainforest, are the illegal pet trade and poaching.

Looking for the tooth

Really must get around to getting this tooth capped

I have some wood stuck in my tooth

Just a relaxing day and I have something in my teeth.

“There’s just a little bit of coconut husk stuck back here.”

What did I have for breakfast. Let’s see ?!

Say Ahhhhhh

Humans made me drop into water looking for food.

I taught Bear Grylls you know

The mask, where the hell is my mask.
