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.

Such a great song...Andrew Farriss from global supergroup INXS has just released his latest EP with his first song on the EP, Tears In The Rain, being inspired by our work to save the orangutans of Borneo and Sumatra and our book Tears In The Jungle.

Thank you so much Andrew for your continued support. You are a legend. We are so humbled that our journey to save the orangutan has inspired you to write such a wonderful song and this song has resonated so strongly for inclusion on your first solo EP. All your songs on this EP are incredible.

As a baby, Taymur was illegally smuggled to Kuwait and kept as a pet. He is now getting a 2nd chance at life. He is learning the skills he will need to return to the wild one day at Forest School.

​For less than $1 per day, you can help Taymur make his way through Forest School and work towards a life in the wild where he belongs.

He is so dear to my heart. I think he's wondering "where am I going this time"? Poor soul was so bounced around in his early life. Now..stability at BOS where everything Orangutan will be shown to him! 💕💕😊

His face goes straight to the heart.

Taymur has such a precious face. My adopted baby ❤️ Thankyou BOS team 🙏..for all the work you do with these babies , so they eventually can be free . 👍🙏

What a precious orangutan, our relative. Save them all, teach them how to survive in the wild and let them free in a safe habitat. 🦧❤️🇺🇸
