- Donate or Fundraise a minimum of AUD$1,000 that directly supports the orangutans
- All meals and accommodation approx AUD$1000 twin share
- Your adventure starts in Balikpapan Indonesia. Flights from Australia are approx AUD$1000.

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
