Why adopt an orangutan?
Orangutans are endangered and at risk of extinction. Hunting, the pet trade, trafficking and habitat destruction all mean hundreds of orangutan deaths every year.
With your help, we can change this. By adopting one of our orangutans, you can take comfort in knowing that they are being cared for around-the-clock. Our dedicated ‘nannies’ teach them what they need to know for when it’s time to release them back to the wild, in places not threatened by people.
Some of our orangutans are featured in the docu-series Orangutan Jungle School, currently available to stream on STAN in Australia.
