Enriching the lives of orangutans

In February Vice President of BOS Australia, Louise Grossfeldt travelled to our Nyaru Menteng sanctuary and worked with keepers and technicians to help develop a range of enrichment strategies.

Enrichment programs are vital for captive orangutans as they teach them how to forage for food, build, modify and use tools, increase agility and develop skills to survive in the wild.

A video clip can be found on our BOS Videos page along with other Nyaru Menteng footage.

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 means hundreds of orphan orangutans need to care for 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.
