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.

453
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.

Today is World Rainforest Day.

Did you know rainforests are home to half of the world's plant and animal species?

But we lose those crucial habitats at an alarming rate. In Borneo, Indonesia, we lost nearly 80% of the critically endangered orangutans within less than 50 years, mainly due to the loss of forest habitat.

Will you help us reforest vital orangutan homes, so our red cousins can thrive and survive for generations to come?

⚠️ Don't miss this unique opportunity and plant twice as many trees today, as every donation will be matched!⚠️

Good luck with your appeal 🥰

Today is the sixth anniversary of Jelapat's rescue!

A local villager in Central Kalimantan, Borneo, had kept the little male as a pet. He claimed to have found him wandering alone and weak in a gold-mining area.

Forest fires had devastated the area around that time, destroying all the trees and blanketing the region in a thick haze. Sadly, his mother undoubtedly perished in the fires or was killed intentionally.

Now, Jelapat is a confident student in Forest School. He made it so far. Will you help him on his final steps to freedom?

It is Bumi's sixth rescue anniversary!

When the little male arrived at our Nyaru Menteng center, he was in shocking condition with fresh wounds on his belly button from his umbilical cord, indicating he was less than two weeks old.

We believe he was violently separated from his mother shortly after his birth.

Following intensive care and a few years at Forest School, Bumi is now a happy, healthy individual showing every sign that he can one day be released into protected rainforest.

If you symbolically adopt Bumi via the link, you can become a vital part of his journey to freedom.💞

I wish there was restrictions in other countries that are ruining the macaque monkey troops, The bring in junk food, lots of fruit instead of teaching them to get their own foods and how to forage on their own, so these monkeys have become codependent on humans to make money, plus they have become fat and lazy....its really sad, thank you for sharing this video

Awesome

Orangutans need vast stretches of forests to find food, mate and raise their offspring.

If you give to our tax appeal today, you help us plant trees for future generations of wild orangutans and become a vital part of their survival!
