Hungry, hungry…

…Orangutans!

 Will you help us keep them fed?

 Yes, I want to help! 

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.

Even though orangutans live semi-solitary lives in the wild, you often see them socialising quite a lot at our centres. They grow up together and learn the skills they will need to survive in the wild over a number of years, forming friendships along the way.

Thank you to everyone who helps to give our orangutans a second chance at a life in the wild by supporting our work.

It currently costs BOS over $27,000AUD a month to feed all the orangutans in our care, which equates to over $300k a year!

We understand that everyone around the world has been touched by this global pandemic, but please make a donation today if you can and help us keep these orangutans well fed!

"This is what I think of 2020"

Spit it out it’s 2020! 😂🤣😂

You can lead a Ranga to water but you can't make her drink

That’s what I think of your idea 💡

Petuy, on you! I'm climbing, don't you want me to?

"Gotchya "
