The biggest threat to orangutan conservation is habitat loss which has led to the serious decline in the orangutan population across Borneo and Sumatra. If deforestation continues at the current rate, orangutans will ultimately become extinct. International Forest Day, which falls on March 21,is a timely reminder of the issues at hand regarding conservation of our forests and ecosystems, and the effects on the future survival of orangutans.
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
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.Adopt Now
