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.

41 orangutans in our care are currently suffering from severe respiratory infection, due to the hazardous smoke haze caused by the fires that still burn in Borneo.

Can you help us to continue providing treatment to those affected?

I have tried twice to create a profile on Vollie so I can look at this...each time I get a 403 'forbidden' error message. 🙁

This photo taken by Björn Vaughn gives us a glimpse into what it is like over in Borneo at the moment. Despite the haze caused by the fires, our dedicated team continue to take the orangutans to forest school to learn the skills they need to return to the wild one day (when it is safe to do so). ...
