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.

410
Orangutans have been released
back to their home.
503
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.

Did you know Taymur is our least adopted baby orangutan? Poor Taymur doesn't understand why, he does try to be a good boy at Jungle School and he even showed his classmates how to cross a small stream recently! Adopt Taymur today to help him get through school and back to the wild one day.

Karen Challis you will be able to talk to Claire about it at Christmas as she will have just got back from Borneo and is spending a few days with the orangutan

Louise Amanda January 2021 here we come!

Good news! Rain has come in Borneo and extinguished many fires. There are still some fires active but they are not in the immediate vicinity of Nyaru Menteng, a welcome relief for all residents (both human and orangutan) at our sanctuary.

Thank you to everyone who helped us during this time and who continues to support us.

Why every forest is burning in the first place? Is it natural?
