All three species of orangutan face the prospect of uncertain futures from human activity, causing fragmented and degraded habitats, and animal suffering due to exploitation. However, with your support, there are projects that are having a direct impact. The Orangutan Foundation supports all species by focusing on conserving their habitats, and rescuing individual animals for release back into the place they rightfully belong.
Orangutans have declined by around 50% in the last 60 years.
There are three species of orangutan – the Sumatran, Tapanuli and Bornean. Orangutans used to roam as far north as southern China, and as far south as the Indonesian island of Java. Today they’re only found on two islands – Sumatra and Borneo.
Animal adoptions like yours give a huge boost to our work. They not only help fund projects to monitor orangutans in Borneo and help create protected areas of rainforest but also fund our other vital work around the world.
