Thank you

Your donation is helping us bring more orangutans home.

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.

485
Orangutans have been released
back to their home.
422
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.

Very clever. They can use this to shelter from sun, rain and even eat it. Amazing!😂x

Orangutans are Very smart. They belong with their own kind in a safe environment. 🦧♥️🦧💙🦧❤️🦧

When little Ramangai arrived at our centre three months ago, he was extremely frail.

​The villager who claimed to have found Ramangai fed him only coffee and bananas, resulting in the baby becoming severely dehydrated.

​Now he is thriving in the Nursery Group. Check out his progress via the link! www.orangutans.com.au/news/big-baby-steps/
