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.

497
Orangutans have been released
back to their home.
409
Orangutans are being cared for in
our 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.

Baby steps to becoming an orangutan.

In the Nursery Group and later in Forest School, every individual is closely monitored, encouraged & learns at their own pace.

One of the tasks of the Post-Release Monitoring team involves collecting phenology data, and while on patrol, they meet orangutans too.

This female was determined to keep an eye on the humans in her part of the forest!

Who is she? 🤔 Find out via the link.
