Adopt orangutans

Only 1 out of 6 orphans are lucky enough to be rescued – over 1,000 orphaned orangutans are living in rescue and rehabilitation centres.

Care of these orangutans is costly and requires 24 hr staff, veterinary, and nurse care to ensure they are in a healthy condition and have the best chance to survive – and possibly even return to the wild.  We have also expanded our adoption programme to include not just infants, but also too now a large adult cheekpadder male called Krismon, who you can see more of here!

From as little as $65 you can make a real difference and help these orangutans survive.

Donate to our Release Appeal

Donate to set the Sumatran Orangutans free

They say if you love someone, set them free, and five orangutans are ready now. After having been rescued from a life of suffering, these orangutans have undergone rehabilitation and training in preparation for their release back into the wild.

It takes love and years of care to prepare them for release and it also takes the money to establish and run this process professionally.

The entire journey to release one orangutan costs $3,000. These funds are essential to pay for everything needed for a successful release. As of October 2016, five orphaned orangutans are ready now so we need to raise $15,000 to ensure they can be released. There is no need for these orangutans to be in care any longer.

The time for freedom is now. Please support this special appeal to set them free.

Donate to our special appeal today

Note: Online donations for this Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Programme appeal are managed by The Orangutan Project, with 100% of funds raised sent to SOCP field projects.
