We urgently need your help

The threat is not over! COVID-19 case numbers in Indonesia are still high, putting our orangutans and staff members at risk.

That’s why we must continue to protect their health as best as we possibly can by increasing our COVID-19 testing.

Only routine antigen tests ensure our staff stays healthy and doesn’t transmit the SARS-CoV-2 virus to the orangutans.

We also carry out antigen and PCR testing on our orangutans in case there is any doubt they could have contracted the virus from interactions with their caretakers.

Especially our little orphans, like newly rescued baby boy Galaksi, need a lot of tender loving care.

With your help, we can keep Galaksi safe.

Our surrogate mothers can only be close to them because of frequent COVID testing. If we didn’t test our staff regularly, the risk of transmitting the SARS-CoV-2 virus to the orangutans in our centres would be too high.

With the extremely contagious Delta variant spreading across Indonesia, we need to test even more.

The increased testing efforts are a huge financial challenge for us. Our centres are still closed for visitors, and other revenue-generating programs are on hold.

But we know we can conquer COVID-19 with you on our side.

Rapid antigen testing is crucial for protecting our staff and orangutans.

Our goal is to raise $35,000 by 31 October to cover the urgently needed COVID-19 testing supplies for our staff and orangutans until the end of this year.

For $40, you can provide the antigen tests for one staff member for one month. And for $95, you can cover the costs of a PCR test for one orangutan.

Will you consider helping us reach our goal so we can continue caring for and comforting little orphans like Galaksi?

How Can You Help

There are lots of ways you can support orangutans and help ensure the survival of this precious ape.

Adopt an Orangutan

Adopt an Orangutan

Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Habitat destruction results in hundreds of orphaned orangutans, who rely on our care every year. You can help by adopting one. Their dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them everything they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild. You can follow their progress through Forest School.
