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.

Tickle alert! Skill #8 on the #OrangutanJungleSchool schedule is Invertebrate Eating.

Termites, ants, and bee larvae form a significant part of the orangutans’ diet.

In particular, termites are readily accessible on the forest floor and are an excellent source of protein.

The teachers encourage their students to break off chunks of rotting wood and then suck out the termites with a quick and sharp inhalation.

So precious and adorable thanks for sharing

🥰😘

he is having so much fun!

We visited Kuchin in Bornio some years ago and visited the ORANG sanctury where they were getting them back into the jungle to live again on ther own .They were feeding them everyday and just shouted into the gungle and they came crashing down from the trees and passed us to get the food ,how wonderfull to see them so close up .I will put up more pictures

👍

Gracias de todo corazón por cuidar y proteger a mi familia Me surge una duda, los orangutanes son seres solitarios en la mayor parte de su vida. ¿ el estar en constante compañía durante su vida y aprendizaje en el Centro no interferirá luego en su posterior reintroducción y vida salvaje en el bosque? Muchas gracias Hago mis preguntas desde el corazón y por mi amor hacia ellos. Gracias Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS) Australia @ Karmele Llano Sanchez.

Eines Tages besuche ich euch ihr Lieblinge♥️

#ExcitingNews from our Post-Release Monitoring team!

The rangers witnessed newly released #orangutans Cinta & Wanto and Liti & Ojes engaging in sweet #JungleLove.💞

While Cinta & Wanto took it slowly by following each other around and eating together, Liti & Ojes started their bonding with a playful game of tug-of-war before climbing up a tall tree and copulating.

Released rehabilitated orangutans typically want to socialise with others as they learn about their surroundings and how to survive in their new home.

Liti and Ojes have shown themselves to be overachievers as they help us increase the orangutan population in the natural, old-fashioned way.

Way to go, guys!🙌

Will you give the gift of #love to #innocent #orphans this #valentinesday?💝

Every year, thousands of #orangutans are displaced or killed due to mass #deforestation, rampant forest fires, poaching for human consumption and the #illegalwildlifetrade.

Whenever an orangutan survives their trauma or is reported captive, we at BOS are ready to #rescue and #rehabilitate them.

We find babies illegally kept as pets in tiny cages, chained in heartbreaking conditions, or fearfully roaming around and fighting for their lives because poachers, loggers or fires killed their mums.

These infants urgently need our #help. And we can only help them if you #supportus!🧡

Please #GiveNow to our Rescue Appeal!🙏

Dengan semakin banyaknya perkebunan sawit yang dibuka maka keberadaan mereka akan semakin mengkhawatirkan..

We just received this video from one of our current volunteers in #Borneo. How cool is this?

If you now think, "I wish I could be there!", - well, you can! We have many more trips coming up.
