URGENT APPEAL

WE NEED TO TEST OUR STAFF AND ORANGUTANS FOR COVID-19!

 

Announcement of Annual General Meeting


The Borneo Orangutan Survival Australia AGM is scheduled for Monday 25th October at 7pm (AEST) via Zoom.
 

Further details here.

We are also inviting supporters of BOS Australia to become members of this great organisation.  Members can attend the AGM and participate in voting. By becoming a member, you are helping to define the direction of BOSA and our work to save orangutans. Single and family memberships are available here.

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.

Did you know that orangutans are the largest arboreal mammals in the world?

That's why our orphaned orangutans need regular tree-climbing practice to master this essential survival skill.

Several of our caregivers are trained in tree-climbing and climb alongside their little Forest School students to encourage them to spend more time up high.

We need your help!

COVID-19 case numbers in Indonesia are still high, putting our orangutans and staff members at risk.

That's why we must continue to protect their health as best as we possibly can by increasing our COVID-19 testing.

But we can't do it without your support!

We need to raise $35,000 by 31 October to cover the urgently needed testing supplies for our staff and orangutans until the end of this year.

Will you help us? Just follow the link below!

Do you know why swaying is such an important skill to learn for orangutans?

Swaying is a more efficient and safe way to travel than climbing down one tree and up the next.

Orangutans often use their own weight to bend the trunks of small trees and branches to propel themselves from tree to tree.

Our forest school students are copying and learning this practical skill from each other.

Recently we had to capture and translocate Bong, one of our released female orangutans.

Read all about why we had no choice to move her and how her boyfriend Hamzah reacted by following the link.
