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.

533
Orangutans have been released
back to their home.
359
Orangutans are being cared for in
our two sanctuaries.

Adopt an orphaned orangutan

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

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.

Here is some #MondayMotivation for you: Start your new week with some (mud) #yoga poses, just like #orangutan Yutris!

Yutris is an #orphan. He was just seven months old when he was rescued in May 2015. Bird hunters found him without his mother, who most likely was killed.

#thankyou for helping us give #orangutans like Yutris a wild future!

El pequeño ángel parece pensar… "estos humanos me aburren… “ ☺️🥰 Gracias de todo corazón Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia por cuidar y proteger a mi familia. 💚🦧🐒🦍🐾🌍💚

It is amazing how men and mawas-mawas are in Hominidae and ungkas are in Hylobatidae and the other two hominoids are mostly thought of as apes and the first hominoid is ne thought of as one ape. Dost thou think so? By men, mawas-mawas, and ungkas, I mean "humans," "orangutans," and "gibbons" and ungka is Malay for "gibbon" while mawas-mawas is the plural of mawas, which is Malay for "orangutan." Hominoid means one member of the "superfamily" Hominoidea. By one, I mean "a" and "an" and it can mean both according to the Oxford English Dictionary. Its Old English root an meant one, "an," and "a" and is also the root of the words an and a. By ne, I mean “not” and it is one old word for it according to the Oxford English Dictionary that came from the Old English word ne, which meant “not.” Yea, the word not was at first one wended shape of the word nought (it is the British version of naught) which in turn came from the Old English word nawiht, which meant nought or naught. By naught and nought, I mean “nothing.” By wended, I mean "altered" and wend is one old word for "alter" according to the Oxford English Dictionary that came from the Old English word for "change" or "alter." By dost thou, I mean do "you."

This little one is so cute. Just hanging around. HA! HA!

😍🦧❤️

Can you please tell me how you name them they so beautiful there names suit them thank you keep up your great work I love the orangutans xxx

So beautiful and Amazing you do fantastic work with these beautiful orangutan thank you

Love them all so gentle and precious

I yleve the 17th-century Dutch scientist Jakob von Bondt's "ourang-outang" (it was Orang Pendek, which was Malaya's answer to Sasquatch and the mi rgod), whose meting seemed to most that the model there was one hairy wife, was ylike the Punic sailor Hanno the Navigator's Gorillai (it is the plural of the Greek word gorilla, which is the root of the English word gorilla), who were one legendary tribe of wild and hairy wives, down to living in eys. Von Bondt's "ourang-outang" lived in Java while Hanno's Gorillai lived in the Canary Eys. Dost thou think so? By yleve, I mean "believe" and it is one old word for it according to the Oxford English Dictionary that came from the Old English word gelefan, which meant "believe" and is also the root of the word believe. That makes yleve and gelefan ylike glauben and geloven, which are German and Dutch for "believe." By ylike, I mean "like" and it is one old word for it according to the Oxford English Dictionary that came from gelic, which is Old English for "like" and is also the root of the word like. By Jakob von Bondt, I mean "Jacobus Bontius." By Malaya, I mean "Malaysia" and "Indonesia." By mi rgod, I mean the "yeti" and it is its Tibetan name. By meting, I mean "picture" and it is one old word for it according to the Oxford English Dictionary that came from the Old English word for it. By wife and wives, I mean "woman" and "women" and wife can mean "any" "woman" according to the Oxford English Dictionary. Yea, one "woman" is the wife in the words midwife, old wives' tale, and fishwife. Wife's Old English root wif at first meant "any" "woman." By Punic, I mean "Carthaginian." By eys, I mean "islands" and ey came from ieg, which is Old English for "island." One "island" is the is in the word island and the ieg in the Old English word iegland, which is the root of the word island. By dost thou, I mean do "you." By one, I mean "a" and "an" and it can mean both according to the Oxford English Dictionary. Its Old English root an meant one, "a," and "an" and is also the root of the words a and an.

With only three weeks left, we are still far from our goal. Please don't let our orangutan students down!
