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.

Who is a proud adoptive parent to Taymur? We love little Taymur so much. We can't figure out why he is still our least adopted orangutan.

You can adopt him today at www.orangutans.com.au/meet-our-family/

I am as well. I am always so touched when I see him. Even though the little boy is growing, it is still so heartbreaking. Sending virtual❤️

I adopted him, he’s a sweetheart ❤️

I am ❤️❤️❤️ !!! I love Taymur so much . ... all of them 🦧❤️

He is absolutely beautiful! 😍

c'est étonnant pourtant il est très sympa, si j'avais les moyens financiers nécessaire, je l'adopterai avec plaisir, ainsi que Cinta. Mais actuellement je suis désolée je ne sais que vous donner 10,00E par mois, ( et, pour pouvoir le faire, j'ai supprimer l'achat du magazine tv) Mais je le fait du fond du coeur.

Hes a cutie and adorable

I am. 💚

I saw his story on Orangutan Jungle School. So sad, but I'm glad he is with you and getting stronger each year. Maybe update his bio 🤗♥️

😍 The kids are all smiles and we are so happy to see him! He seems well. ☺

If this picture isn’t loving and caring for these Great Apes I don’t know what is. You know they are both smiling. Thank you BOS for protecting the orangutans, our relatives. God Bless ❤️🇺🇸

Sweet baby!🦧❤ Thank you bos staff for taking care of the orangutans

Did you know the #1 reason that orangutans are declining in population is habitat loss? The expanding palm oil industry has been a key driver of deforestation.

The good news is you can help make a difference from your home. Please download our Palm Oil Free and CSPO List to help you make an informed choice when purchasing products.
